The majority of us might not know that WE are able to learn about coffee and tea for “FREE”. Well, this is not exactly free… however you are welcome to give any amount which your heart tells you so. Happening since early March, now you have 4 more events which you can attend!
Meanwhile, lets us find out a little more about this concept by Dave Lim who is the founder of Parchmen & Co, and Sun Ray Cafe. Dave is a certified tea master, and world #3 in tea pairing in the International Tea Masters Cup held in China in 2017. He is also a silver medallist for roasting at the Australia International Coffee Awards 2017, and an authorised certifier under the auspice of Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).
What Is Your Concept About?
PACT (Parchmen Academy of Coffee and Tea) is established to build a community of fine drinker who respect the drink and the hard work of the farmers working behind the scene.
What Are Your Inspirations and Future Plans?
We hope to be the go-to school for F&B, where a certificate from PACT is a mark of competence and professionalism. Currently, all the classes are taught by me alone. In future, we hope to also grow a team of trainers.
Share With Us The Type of Courses You Offer And Your Aims.
We do free-tipping classes as well as paid professional classes for coffee and tea which are diligently taught and not expensive given the amount of content covered.
For all the free tipping classes, our aim is to encourage as many people to learn about these wonderful drinks as possible, without any burdens on the price.
Every suggestion will be taken into consideration to improve the next event’s experience
They have changed the quality of chocolates & seating arrangements.
For the professional coffee courses, we conduct Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) classes that earns the successful graduate an internationally recognised certificate. For professional tea, there is no worldwide certification, and we conduct our own courses, drawing the strength from my coffee, wine, sake and whiskey training.
