CQI - Q Cupping Essentials
CQI - Q Cupping Essentials Course
The Essentials course simulates real-world professional cupping, enabling learners to develop the knowhow to efficiently and effectively set up and conduct cupping sessions, and note their sensory impressions clearly on the SCA Cupping Form.
It will cover the common language of quality, and include hands-on practice in the discipline and actual exercise of cupping in order to score, identify, and differentiate quality coffees according to CQI protocols.
The Q Cupping Essentials Certificate is awarded to learners that successfully pass evaluation.
This course is most suitable for Q Grader candidates, quality control practitioners, coffee product developers, prospective coffee buyers, and roasters working with producing partners — those for whom advanced cupping skills would increase competency in their current role and could lead to career progression.
Coffee enthusiasts and baristas with a keen interest in this technical subject are most welcome to join.
Learning will be led by Alin Giriada, Q Instructor and AST with over 16 years of experience in the coffee industry, and the only person in Europe to be certified as both Q Instructor and SCA Authorized Trainer in all CSP modules. He is an expert in barista techniques, coffee brewing techniques, green coffee analysis and outsourcing, coffee roasting, and coffee sensory analysis.
