Training & Support
“Tell me and I will forget, show me and I will remember, involve me and I will understand” – this is the basis of our Training and Teaching method. An emotion-based teaching method, in the world-wide unique, 2000 m2 multi-medial theme park, known as Schärf World, our Training process offers a thorough, but interesting yet versatile and particularly aromatic learning course. It combines our senses and takes every visitor on a journey through every step of the value chain, from a real coffee plantation to a state-of-the art roasting plant, from coffee and gastronomic concepts to machine technology, and leaves a fascinating impression from the world of coffee in the human mind.
