1. Overall I had a good experience to learn a lot from the course. This introduction course gave me an insight of the coffee production process. All the general ideas from the time of the harvest till it gets brewed to the coffee cup. 2. I guess all the topics that’s were introduced in the class had its own importance but the one that I enjoyed the most was the roasting and cupping. 3. Well this was my first coffee course experience and I am very glad that I did this course. It gave me a general insight on coffee. We didn’t go into much details but it gave me all the processes that is to be kept in mind to make a specialty coffee. I did go to Himalayan Java to learn about coffee but the course they’d offered was barista training which is irrelevant to me. 4. It was a good learning experience and I’m proud that we got to grasp a great deal of knowledge about coffee from an experienced and qualified professor and a doctor and a Q grader Dr. Raj Kumar Banjara 5. Yes, we are actually planning to export coffee in Hong Kong. For the time being we are very motivated and want to explore the coffee market. 6. The venue was great. That provided us lunch and breaks and regarding the disability accessibility I’m also happy that NCA has looked upon on this matter. I guess the tables we was in the class room was user friendly and made for the disabled. 7. Our professor was qualified and well experience. He gave us all the basic information what is included in the making of coffee. I was really impressed about the way he explained and taught us all the basics about the coffee. The only complaint I had was we wouldn’t get the slides because we missed out some of the points we wanted to review but over all we were happy with all the knowledge he shared with us. 8. We are happy we did this course. Is was a general introductory course were we learnt all the general things about coffee. We still have a lot to learn and want to keep learning more. There are other important and in-depth courses that we still need to attend so we will be coming back for those courses after Dr. Raj Kumar gets back from Europe.

I have been searching for a professional barista training centre in Kathmandu Nepal and I find National Coffee Academy as the best barista training institute in Nepal. Now I can prepare most of the popular coffee drinks like cafe latte, cappuccinos, mocha and also hand brew coffee like pour over V60, Turkish Coffee, moka pot coffee and other special beverages like affagato, conpana, smoothie bowls, and more. Thank you team NCA.
