The List solicits the advice of our own Patrick O’Malley in finding the best commercially available drip coffee.
Remember that our Infusion Coffee & Tea has tons of types of coffee that you can get delivered to your door – without the barista tears or burnt overtones!
Yes its been a while since we have done any IBCA courses here in Arizona. Patricks been very busy in Europe and will be going to London in December. He was waiting for his Visa so he could go to Brazil and teach in November but the visa came too late, so now we can make some dates for classes at our facility in Tempe! YAY!
Patrick will be in Washington DC teaching from the 22nd-27th of November. If you are interested please let us know!

This course lays the foundation for all subsequent IBCA classes, and is a great way to “get a taste” of the IBCA curriculum.
Spend time in the classroom, then receive substantial “hands on” training designed to bring your skill set as a barista up to current standards and your understanding of coffee/milk to the next level.
Learn all technical and scientific facets of coffee roasting, identify coffee at all stages of roasting, and get an in-depth knowledge of what is involved in micro-roasting coffees.
Learn the fundamentals of formal coffee analysis; develop keen sensory skills, formal cup tasting protocol, and proper terminology used in the coffee industry.
Learn significant background, science, and history of the unroasted or immature “Coffee Bean” (actual “seed”). All aspects of Green Coffee from botany and agronomy to storage and decaffeination will be covered in these classes.
Learn the importance and interaction of all grinding and extraction methods, as well as brewing styles typically used in the coffee industry. These classes are an excellent preparation for the Green Coffee class.
