An e-learning lesson plan at ciaprochef.com sponsored by Starbucks Foodservice.
Every great cup of coffee begins with top-quality beans: the right variety, grown in the right place, and processed the right way. The more you know about the beans, the more enlightened coffee consumer you will be. After all, the only other ingredient in the brew is the water.
This lesson plan, part of ciaprochef.com—The Culinary Institute of America's Web site for foodservice professionals—was sponsored by Starbucks Foodservice and includes the following areas of training:
- Best practices of brewing coffee
- Coffee by country
- Picking and processing

- Brewing coffee

Supporting videos include step-by-step visual instructions for preparing recipes such as espresso- and chili-rubbed flat-iron steak with warm chipotle-tomato jam and syrah demi jus, and a smoked-turkey, Asiago, apple and sage sandwich with coffee/shallot jam.
