The University of Florence is offering a master's degree in coffee, where it says students can get an education on every aspect of the coffee-making process, from cultivating coffee plants and the intricacies of the coffee supply chain to preparing a fresh cup.
The 9-month-long course begins in January with an inaugural class of 24 students. Though the first class will be taught in Italian, subsequent years of classes may be offered in English.
Students will learn in-person in Italy, which has been hailed as the coffee capital of the world and the birthplace of espresso and espresso-based drinks like macchiatos and cappuccinos.
While many institutions offer coffee-making courses, it seems the program at the University of Florence is only one of a handful of coffee master's degree programs. The Universita del Cafe in Italy offers a master's program covering the world of coffee and the University of California Davis Coffee Center has announced that its long-term goals is to design a master's degree in coffee science.
However, if you can't make it to Italy for your coffee education, barista schools and coffee classes proliferate online and in-person for both amateurs and professionals.
"We will cover all aspects of the business. Right from the origins to the preparation and serving of the drink," the course's supervisor, Francesco Garbati Pegna, told Breezy Scroll. "The course is the only one of its kind, as far as I am aware."

Except Armstrong is not in the tropics of Central America – he is in Ventura, California, just 60 miles (97 km) away from downtown Los Angeles. "I guess now I can say I am a coffee farmer!" he said, after planting the last seedlings of high-quality varieties of arabica coffee long cultivated in sweltering equatorial climates.

The amount held in household savings deposits fell to $10.6 trillion in the second quarter from $10.8 trillion in the first quarter.

The case goes back to Italy’s darkest hour, when anti-mafia magistrates Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino were assassinated two months apart in bombings that killed 23 others in 1992.
