Coffee and tea are the most widely consumed beverages on the planet. In this course students examine the science and traditions of tea and coffee production, preparation and service.

A worldwide variety of products, traditions and ceremonies are reviewed, tasted, and analysed. The students are also able to practice the art of preparation and service of these beverages in a barista style environment. They also experience the marriage of these beverages to pastries made in associated courses and the most appropriate way of serving them in a coffee/tea shop environment.
