In the bustling city of Tokyo, where the coffee culture thrives with an ever-growing community of enthusiasts and professionals, our Tasse Coffee Roastery had the pleasure of welcoming a curious student from Canada, embarking on his real-world coffee roasting journey.

Beyond the Screen: The Limitations of Video Learning

Despite having watched over 100 videos on coffee roasting, our Canadian student soon realized the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical experience. Video tutorials, while informative and accessible, often fall short of conveying the nuanced, tactile, and sensory aspects of coffee roasting. Recognizing this, he decided to take a step further into the aromatic world of coffee by enrolling in our SCA Coffee Roasting Foundation course.
