Hello, dear friends, and welcome to my first course of the «Coffee Basics» series – «The HISTORY of COFFEE».

It is intended for Coffee Lovers and Baristas who want to know more about their favorite drink and understand all its diversity and versatility.

I will introduce myself to those who are not yet familiar with my other course – «The BOTANY of COFFEE.» By the way, I strongly recommend that you take it, because, together with the «HISTORY», it will help you form a COMPLETE picture of basic coffee knowledge.

My name is Sergio Reminny, I am a coffee expert with 25 years of experience in the coffee industry, a businessman, a writer, and the first Coordinator of the European Speciality Coffee Association (SCAE) in Ukraine (2003-2008).

After thousands of articles on my Coffee Blog, hundreds of videos on my YouTube channel, and a series of coffee books, I created this online course.

The main task that I set for myself in the course was to translate the complex coffee world knowledge into SIMPLE and INTERESTING lessons for both ordinary coffee lovers and baristas. And also to teach you to UNDERSTAND the relationship between different coffee categories and, to help you use this knowledge in your life.

«The HISTORY of COFFEE» will give you a complete chronological understanding of how coffee won peoples’ hearts and became a favorite drink of mankind.

You will not find on the Internet the materials presented in my lessons. Because they are all derived from my many years of experience and are based on my personal view of the history of coffee after studying it for a quarter of a century.

Here I am not going to teach you what is right and what is not. My goal is to teach you to UNDERSTAND the world of coffee and to use your knowledge.

As one of the greatest coffee lovers of our time, the great French writer Honoré de Balzac, said: «Study the past, and it will teach you the future...»

You know, instead of offering my arguments in favor of your taking this course, I want to give a perfect example of how the understanding of the history of coffee can help you in your life. For this, please, watch the free intro of my course. An interesting example of a clear understanding of the difference between Latte and Cappuccino is waiting for you.

The purpose of this short story, pals, was to draw your attention to the fact that knowledge of history is not just erudition.

Knowing the PAST is important for understanding what you are doing TODAY and who you will become TOMORROW.

This is exactly what my course is about.

Take it and I assure you will not regret it. And I promise that it will be interesting ...))

Well, we have a lot of work today, so let's get down to business right away.
