Q Grader Training and Exam by Gather Coffee Company – postponed new date TBD


Mon, Jun 8, 8:00 AM — Sat, Jun 13, 5:00 PM


Instructor: Jodi Wieser

My name is Jodi. Coffee has been a part of my life for a really long time. From a very early age, my dad would bring back coffee from his world travels and I found it so intriguing. I also got the travel bug, and after college I moved to Mali, West Africa for two years to focus on international development work. Upon returning from Mali, I attended graduate school and earned a double masters in Intercultural Studies and Theology. I worked with Willem Boot, and the Boot Coffee Team, as a quality consultant and trainer for 7 years. Now, I'm a licensed Q Grader Instructor, as well as a Certified Instructional Trainer for the Specialty Coffee Association of America. My life-long admiration for coffee, along with my education and experience abroad, provide the perfect framework for a successful career in the coffee industry. Please feel free to contact me at jodi@gathercoffeecompany.com for more information about Gather Coffee Company Q Courses or to set up a Q Training & Exam at your lab. I'm also available for private consulting and training.
