    Long time drinker first time Brewer. I chose to do this course as a hobby interest, not a job and glad I did. The trainers did just know about coffee shops but had amazing stories of sourcing beans all over the world: Kenya, Columbia, Ethiopia and India. Who thought the origin stories of coffee we’re so extreme?

  2. Sarah
