Organizer Ferris Coffee Co: Coffee Education and Training Lab

Organizer of Coffee Tasting: Identifying Taste + Understanding Origin

 

Education creates empowerment. When we are encouraged to learn, positive growth is the result.

At the Ferris Coffee Lab, we aim to share our passion, knowledge, and expertise in order to equip our employees, our customers, and the general public with the skills and tools needed to better understand the specialty coffee industry, and ultimately, to make better coffee. It's here in these facilities that we offer hands-on training in a variety of classes and workshops. This investment in the specialty coffee community pays back two-fold: we build stronger relationships with our customers and they represent Ferris with the quality and integrity that we strive for every day. 

Our Coffee Lab was built in 2018 and is connected to our production facility which hosts our roastery, nitro canning line, and packaging machines. The sensory-controlled room can accommodate groups both small and large comfortably and is built for educational classes, hosting coffee industry competitions, public workshops and wholesale customer tastings.
