Q Courses & Exams

by colabops and coffee quality institute (CQI), USA

It is our belief that education is the beginning of success. We formed a team with Thomas Jason Ameloot – Q Instructor (Colabops) and started a Q Program in Thailand with Bluekoff Education Center (Bangkok). To let coffee farmers and people know that specialty coffee education is essential for the global specialty coffee industry, our educator is dedicated to creating a conducive learning environment, encouraging excellent communication about specialty coffee and protocol as a universal language, and emphasizing practical application.
