 * Education is everything. Don’t ever stop learning. It will be the best thing for your career as a roaster to do Anne’s roasting course! Richard - Silipo Coffee 


 * Thanks again for all your help! Our roast profiles have improved out of sight after doing the course. I learnt sooo much and really thank you for sharing so much of your knowledge and passion with us. It means a lot. Dan – Melbourne


* Our coffee roasting weekend after the course was awesome!!! We used so much of the info from the roasting course. Thanks to you, we are on our way to becoming better roasters!!! Sam & Dan - Ground and Pound Coffee


 *Just wanted to say thank you once again for the weekend, it was great to be exposed to some great info and the opportunity to use a variety of different roasters. Michael - Cabrito Coffee


  * I'm working over my roaster at the moment busting out a 30kg order. I'm not joking when I say I'm getting some of the best results I've ever had!!

 I seriously can't be happier Anne! I'm now super, super excited!! Initially I was hesitant to come to the course because I thought that $1000 could be better spent elsewhere. But I'm so, so glad now, that's $1000 of beans I would have butchered previously and now I have a solid base of knowledge to steer me in a better direction than where I was going.

I’m so glad I was able to partake in this course. The abundance of knowledge was priceless. For once I got to nerd out with other like-minded people! Thank you so much!! Brendon - Melbourne
