Brewing Foundation is the first contact with the methods of drip extraction and the knowledge of the variables that will allow us to develop a perfect infusion of coffee and its correct extraction.

The aim of this course is to enable the barista to control all the variables that influence the brewing process and to be able to extract the best results for the various methods. 

The Foundation level is perfect for those eager to put every basic piece in place but also go a little deeper to evaluate the coffee. It is about best practices; as the extraction of coffee for the candidates is deepened in an important way.

For the practicals we have material from including the following coffee makers: Chemex, V60, Aeropress, French Press, Cold Brew and Clever Dripper.

Course content: 

  • Coffee botany. Plants, species and specific information.
  • Processing and processing techniques.
  • Speciality coffees: quality.
  • Preparation of coffee: factors affecting extraction.
  • Coffee vs. water ratio. Water ratios and characteristics.  
  • Types of grinding.
  • Infusion temperature and contact time.
  • Turbulence of water on coffee particles.
  • Extraction process for different methods.

The course is held in the centre of Madrid, at Hola Coffee Academy (Link in Maps). We attach great importance to quality and personalised attention in the training courses, so the maximum number of participants is 4 people.
