Scott Rao is coming back to Prufrock this year to conduct some intensive small group roasting workshops. 2017 has been massive for Scott Rao seeing him kick start his brilliant Blog. Scott’s amazingly frank and influential roasting textbook, The Coffee Roaster’s Companion continues to be passed around all the great roasteries we buy from here at Prufrock and has had a big influence on our in-house UK Roasting Champion Matthew Robley-Seimonsma too. Here is a great article from in Sprudge by Alex Bernson on this book which will be on sale on the day.
People attending this workshop will receive a direct email from Scott with a list of what to do to prep for the course and what to bring. He wants curves and samples from all attendees which you will cup together and critique on the day. The course will be carried out in Prufrock’s roasting suite at Leather Lane.
Scott has more experience roasting and consulting than anyone in the roasting world and all this on an immense number of machines and different coffees lending him a truly global perspective. Typifying his very Socratic style of teaching he remarks ‘I don’t have all the answers, but I know a lot about what aren’t the answers.’ Come learn from the World’s preeminent coffee educator and take this chance to cup and compare notes with 11 other roasting enthusiasts and professionals.
To keep things super focused we have limited numbers to 12 people.
