FAQ (click to show)

What do I get?
You get access to over 50+ in-depth videos covering 12 different topics within coffee roasting. This includes our unique roasting framework developed from over 10,000 experimental roasts that we’ve run across the last 6 years. Learn how to roast coffee better than anyone in just one click.

Do I need a roasting machine or any other special equipment?
No you don’t. Although we do believe practise makes perfect and we strongly encourage students to practise as much as possible on any roasting machine. You can practise roasting at our co-roasting facility as well.

I have never roasted before, is this a good place to start?
Yes! This is the ONLY place to start! We named this course the Ultimate Roasting Course for a reason. It was designed to be the most cutting edge, comprehensive and practical resource on roasting. It will cover any and everything you need to know to roast better than anyone.

How hard is the course?
We’re not going to lie; this course isn’t easy. It gets progressively more challenging as the modules dive into more complex and comprehensive topics. That said, it is not impossible to master the concepts taught in the course. Many of our peers have managed to fully integrate their learnings into their roasting craft.

What if I have questions?
All subscribers have access to the course forum where they can ask questions and seek clarification from other students of the course and also from the teachers moderating the course.

What is the certification process?
Students need to complete and pass all assessments within the course with a minimum grade of 80%. At the end of the course, there will also be a final assessment where the student needs to roast a physical coffee for submission and achieve a minimum score on the roasted coffee in order to achieve certification. Final certificates will be printed and mailed to you.

What happens after I buy the course?
Once you’ve subscribed to the course, you will automatically receive the details to login to our learning platform where you can access all the course content.

Is the course online?
Yes, the course itself is online, but you can also practise at our co-roasting facility. Master and Business Subscriptions also receive specific coffees and waters from us to conduct their own tasting sessions.

How long does it take to complete the course?
Depending on your experience level, the core content can take anywhere from a month to 2 months to understand and internalize. However, we are always adding new content and experiment findings to the course so that your learning never stops.

Can I share the course with my friends?
Each user will have to pay for their own access to the course. We reserve the right to limit the number of IP addresses that access the course for each account and revoke access if any abuse of the account has been detected.

Is there live tutoring or webinars available?
For Master and Business subscriptions, you are entitled to a 1 hour live coaching session with our roasting team each month. We will evaluate your roasting, consult you on areas for improvement and calibrate our palettes with you during this session.

What’s the refund policy?
We named this course the Ultimate Roasting Course for a reason. It was designed to be the most cutting edge, comprehensive and practical resource on roasting. If we didn’t live up to any of these claims, we’ll give you a full refund immediately.
