I am a Canadian resident looking to organize an impromptu SCAA Cupping Advanced Course & Q Grader Exam starting July 16th, 2012. In order for this course to go ahead we will need 5 more Cuppers on board.
I will clarify that I am not an SCAA Instructor, I'm not selling the course, I am not affiliated with the staff or facility offering the course, nor are there any special discounts rated being offered... I am only one Canadian reaching out to other people who are interested in attending a program to get SCAA Q Grader Exam in July. Im just trying to get us all organized and in one location come July 16th, 2012.
Originally this course is an intensive 5 day course. But in this special case an extra 6th day is being afforded to us. This is a great opportunity for small class room interaction and the extra day to prepare for examination doesn't hurt either!
A great way to start the summer and build-up a coffee education!!
I think it is a great opportunity too, I have been pluggin away trying to get the word out...
The SCAA Training and the Roasting Course mentioned above would take place in Vermont.
I have also received a reply from a second Instructor, this one on the West Coast, who can do the same 6 day SCAA course same date July 16-21, and I have located a Roasting course available July 23-25 in the area as well.
So it seems both sides of the country are covered...As I am traveling long distances and can not afford too much time off, I have to keep my options open. So I have made contacts on either coast. Each classes availability is dependent on getting the full class of students.
Can I ask which Coast/Roasting class do you lean towards?
