Coffee masterclass from a Dubai expert

Words by Rob Chilton

Training courses in Dubai can teach you all about the brown bean

Dragan Ristic is an expert coffee grader and trainer at Ror Roastery in Al Quoz. He spoke to EDGAR about his coffee preferences.

The most common mistake people make when brewing coffee at home is… not understanding the basic standards such as recommended water quality and coffee to water ratio.

When I smell coffee it makes me feel… hypnotised for a while.

Coffee training gets underway

The coffee-producing region I want to visit is... either Ethiopia or Colombia, which I hope to see later this year.

My favourite bean/country of origin is… cradle of coffee from Ethiopia.

The key lessons from the introduction to coffee course at Ror are… lots of useful information such as different coffee processing methods from the farms, recommended brewing standards, and cupping protocols.

Easy with the milk

The hardest barista skill to learn is… consistency.

My favourite cafe in Dubai for a cup of coffee is… Daily Dose in Jumeriah. As Ror supplies the best quality coffee beans to the whole of the UAE this is hard for me to choose!

The most impressive piece of coffee art I’ve ever seen was… a zebra pattern created by World Latte Art Champion Caleb Cha in 2016 (top).

My favourite way to drink coffee at home is… black.

Ror Roastery are running training courses on topics such as introduction to coffee, barista skills, brewing skills and sensory skills.
