Qualified Knowledge Transfer in the Coffee Sector

The mediation of basic knowledge and professional know-how all around the topic coffee is an important element of the project: From the fundamentals of coffee cultivation up to the correct and taste-orientated preparation of in the cup. Participants are being trained in two COFFEE Camps in Italy according to the European standardized Coffee Diploma Systems of the SCAE (Speciality Coffee Association of Europe).


Trainings in Brazil und Indonesia

Cross-border learning and knowledge transfer – these are the challenges participants tackle during two stays on coffee plantations: A trip to Brazil is planned for September 2016 and in January 2017 Indonesia will be visited. Part of this training is getting the know the life and work of local coffee farmers and to receive deeper insights into the origins of coffee production through practical work in the plantations in combination with theoretical components.

Digital Training Modules

For all those who do not have the opportunity to participate in the Coffee activities first hand, there is the opportunity to use online training modules on a project’s website. “In this way we want to make the knowledge about good coffee accessible to a broader group of interested people” says project manager Elisabetta Epping Rossi.
