Ulrich Ehlers
Coffee Technician

Since 1994 I have been servicing piston coffee machines and portafilter machines and I thought I knew a lot about coffee. When I started my training as a coffeologist with my wife in 2012, I realized that I knew nothing about coffee. 
Since that time I have been learning new things and even though my wife and I are already Master Coffeologists, there is always something new to learn at every workshop.
o be able to apply this knowledge in machine technology is a huge enrichment for our company.

The importance of the coffeologist training is closely linked to the start of my company. In 2012, the Coffeologist Training has laid the cornerstone for my self-employment by revolutionizing, deepening and consolidating my knowledge of coffee like nothing else. It has also awakened a curiosity to learn more and more about coffee and to pass this knowledge on to others. To motivate people to learn and to continue learning is still my driving force today.

Coffeologist Education is no doubt the most professional and comprehensive coffee education program that I have ever countered. Instead of seeing coffee as a marketing-oriented commodity, in this educational program, we learn to look at coffee from a natural science perspective. It gives us a better and fairer overview of various species and varieties of coffees instead of pursuing some fashion standards that may not reflect the real essence of what coffee truly is.
The program also dives into the cultural and historical perspectives of coffee, for one to learn how human and coffee interacted and inter-evolved over thousands of years. For me, Master Coffeologist does not mark the highest level of coffee education. It secures us onto the right path to further understand coffee in a more scientific and anthropological approach.

If there should ever be a coffee curriculum taught in university, the Coffeologist Education program would be the first on my recommendation list. Having experience in different programs since the beginning of my coffee career, this program is the only one that could truly convince and stimulate me intellectually. Dr Steffen Schwarz has done a great job in providing me with an innovative learning experience based on an Oxford teaching technique that painted interesting stories into a network of vast coffee knowledge; from farm to business and history to culture. What draws it apart from other certification programs is that you can always get a reliable evidence-based answer when you ask “Why?” in class. So if you really want to know something to the roots and not just have another piece of paper to hang on your wall, join a Coffeology class and experience it yourself.

The Coffeologist Education provide deeper insight, technical and experiential knowledge about coffee, subjects of the Coffeologist Education form a coherent whole.
During twelve days of intensive training, I got more inspiration about coffee in various areas. Motivation has come up to dig deeper into all relevant knowledge such as natural science, the effect of cultural differences on the perceptions of coffee, and practical plantation situation shared by Farmers.
From the technical aspect, I have developed consolidated skills and competencies based on the scientific findings and theories. Besides, I have discovered the true meaning of the word "Brewing".
This course is definitely a great start to coffee knowledge and huge amount of valuable personal experiences shared by Dr. Schwarz.

Coffeelogist courses provides an extensive overview of coffee knowledge with a scientific and historic approach that many reputable courses do not cover. It is exclusive to Coffee Consulate as it is backed by detailed research by which Dr Steffen, the founder, often engages in as a reputable, no-nonsense academic. Being a Master Coffeelogist do enable one to question and search deeper with clarity towards many issues that faces the coffee world today, ranging from coffee species, growth, harvesting to detailed information such as the science behind the sensory and taste of different cultures and their derivative of coffee making styles.

Meinen Anspruch im eigenen Café, dem Gast immer das perfekte Erlebnis zu bereiten, brachte mich dazu mich mit dem Thema Kaffee genauer zu beschäftigen. 2012 absolvierte ich die Coffeologen-Ausbildung. Hier merkte ich schnell, das das vermittelte Wissen nicht nur gut und einprägsam aufbereitet und vermittelt wird, sondern auf einem wissenschaftlichen Fundament steht. Ein Ansatz der meiner Neugierde sehr entgegen kommt und den ich so bei anderen Weiterbildungen nicht erlebt habe. Der Abschluss zum Master-Coffeologen brachte nicht nur tiefere Einblicke in das Gesamt-Spektrum Kaffee, sondern konnte mein Blickfeld, basierend auf neusten Forschungen und Erkenntnissen immer stärker weiten. Das erlangte Verständnis ist breit und tief zugleich und Zusammenhänge erschließen sich einfacher. Die gewonnene Sachkenntnis hilft mir in der Qualitätssicherung, der Entwicklung neuer Produkte und in der Schulung von Mitarbeitern und Teilnehmern meiner Kurse.
