I would like to inform you about an exiting exame we did last month. Louis, Moniek, Louis wife Micky and My self went to Germany, Frankfurt to passe for our international barista certificate 1 & 2. And we all passed!!
But I have to be honest, it wasn’t easy for us. Especially the theory about regions was hard to learn. We planned to visit the exhibition and German Barista final between the classes and workshops but… We had to learn.
So we sat there in a restaurant like 16 year old students. Louis brought his coffee bible and we had two ours to learn our stuff.Alf Kramer was our teacher for the day. On day one we did certificate 1. That wasn’t hard to do. But to be honest again, during the practical test I was a bit nervous.
We had to make 2 perfect espressi, two over extracted and two under extracted. Simple stuff but my knees were shaking all over.
But happy enough we all passed!
Take care, Jeroen
