BRITA Professional has teamed up with specialist barista duo, Rob Dunne and Victor Frankowski, to launch an exclusive coffee training programme.

The unique training sessions have been specially created to help operators understand how water affects the quality of coffee.

The one day, interactive sessions will be led by baristas Rob and Victor, who bring their extensive experience of speciality coffee and education to the table.

Each of the training sessions will take attendees through practical and theoretical elements including; the science of flavour, aroma and taste, coffee cupping, sensory experiences and water theory.

Victor Frankowski, of DunneFrankowski, commented: “Baristas and coffee operators across the board put an immense amount of effort into their coffee – from the sourcing and roasting of the beans, to the brewing and presentation.

“However, water is often overlooked when baristas are perfecting their coffee recipe. We’ve been working with BRITA to explore how water affects both espresso and filter and we’re excited to share our combined knowledge through these sessions.”

Talking about the importance of water quality when it comes to coffee was Sales Director for BRITA Professional, Miles Dawson, who said: “Water has come onto the radar of the coffee community in a big way over the last few years and is no longer taken for granted.

“It’s now recognised as having a significant influence on the look, smell and taste of a cup of coffee.

“Our new training sessions with Rob and Victor aims to help equip operators across the board with meaningful, in-depth knowledge of what’s in the cup and the water, so they can deliver exceptional quality coffee to their customers.”

The sessions, which launched today, will be offered exclusively through BRITA Professional to customers, partners and operators interested in learning about water. To register your interest, email Miles Dawson on .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
