    There is a lot more to brewing a golden cup of coffee than just adding water to coffee. I am so satisfied that I took this class. The have a deeper knowledge of water to coffee ration, grind size and brewing methods. As well, the highly capable and knowledgeable instructor Jingbo Deng clearly communicated all the theories and practical necessities in achieving a golden cup. This class is not limited to a specialty brewer only, if you want to be a barista, own a cafe, become a roaster, etc. this class will help you become a more skilled one.

    This course is telling you how to reference your brewing style and why you should do like that. Even though pour over coffee is not an objective thing, but basically due to the theories and phenomenon there is a way to make a coffee are liked by “most people” and this course is telling you why and teach you how to do that.
    I am a person work in a coffee shop and have my own understanding and style on brewing coffee, these knowledges are from my experiences and many experiments. At very beginning I thought this course is just for listing everything I know, but after the class I find out a lot of things I might not find out from all my life. The knowledge gives me a huge space for referencing my coffee and many ideas to try new things also let me know how to make it better.
    Even though numbers not always matches physical sensory evaluation, but if you want to go pro and to know how many space you have to improve yourself, this course is necessary and valuable.
