This lecture, hosted by the Coffee Technicans Guild, will go over some of the salient points from our first two events: Espresso Maintenance and Safety, Water, and Electricity. We’ll also take a deeper look at using a digital multimeter to troubleshoot problems, and talk about what it means to be an coffee tech in a rapidly growing field!

About the Coffee Technicians Guild

The Coffee Technicians Guild (CTG) is an official trade guild of the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) dedicated to supporting the coffee industry through the development of professional technicians. The CTG strives to be the voice of technicians within the coffee community. Founded in 2016, the guild is now welcoming its first members and hopes to create a community of technicians who can provide mutual support and knowledge, as well as provide opportunities to develop skills and learn best practices.

About Grounds for Health:

Since 1996, Grounds for Health has worked in Latin America and Africa to address one of the most significant disparities in women’s health globally. Cervical cancer is a nearly 100% treatable disease, and yet in the next 15 years it is expected to kill six million women – 90% of whom will live in developing countries. They specialize in working in communities that represent the base of global supply chains such as coffee, tea, cut flowers and cocoa. Grounds for Health is a mission-driven, international non-profit organization, born out of and with enduring ties to the coffee industry, and focused on increasing coverage of cervical cancer prevention services.
