Scott was featured as the instructor in the afternoon education programs for the Baristas, teaching such classes as Roasting & Coffee Cupping.

10 Baristas, chosen from a pool of hundreds of applicants from around the world, were tasked with working coffee farms alongside the very people whose life is built around growing the coffee the Baristas love to brew.

  They were tasked with the daily tasks of harvest and processing and everything it takes to grow delicious high quality coffee – all on camera!

Various challenges were setup for all, such as who can pick the most ripe coffee cherries, and other teamh_logo_welcher building exercises.
