Coffea Diversa Presents



Today’s specialty coffee traders, roasters and baristas are experts in roasting techniques,  cupping procedures, drinks preparation, and the different coffee qualities offered from different  countries, unfortunately they lack the knowledge in coffee farming and processing, hence they  have a vacuum in their knowledge as coffee professionals, they are “incomplete coffee men” 

and “incomplete coffee women”. There would not be a coffee industry if there were no coffee  farms and coffee processing, the coffee industry starts at the farms where the coffee is  produced and processed, hence the importance for coffee professionals to acquire knowledge  about these topics. Because of the high degree of competition we see in the coffee industry 

today in which new trading companies, coffee shops and roasteries open shops every day, it is  necessary for coffee professionals to acquire a more deep coffee knowledge in order to  differentiate themselves from competitors.


in a real plantation located in Costa Rica

This is why we are now offering a COFFEE FARMING, PROCESSING & BOTANICAL  VARIANTS CUPPING PRACTICAL TRAINING COURSE. This course is held at Coffea  diversa, a real life coffee plantation that holds the largest private collection of coffee botanical  variants in the world with more than 700 specimens, with a wet and dry coffee mill, with roasting  facilities and cupping facilities. You will be living a coffee farmer’s life during this course.  

By acquiring a greater, deeper, coffee knowledge in coffee farming and processing you will  become a “complete coffee man” or “complete coffee woman”, you will become a complete  coffee professional. By attending this course you will obtain a more intimate knowledge and a  more thorough understanding of coffee, the product you love, the product you have chosen as your business activity. 

This new knowledge will help you improve your business because knowledge is power. It will  help you to speak with your customers about your coffee products in a more confident and  persuasive way and your customers will notice that confidence in you, this of course will have a  very positive impact in your coffee business.

In this course you will not only learn the theory of each topic, but you will be actually learning by  doing with your own hands many of the coffee farm activities that will be covered in this event. 
Specialty coffee roasters should think about their participation in this course as an investment in  their professional careers that will have a significant beneficial effect in their business.
