    Sorry to tell you that this Friday's Coffee Cupping Course at Coffee Pro is cancelled. We need a minimum 10 persons for this class, by now only 7 signed up and 2 paid. So, we have to cancel this class.

      Hi Virginia, I was simply waiting to sign up... I am definitely available and am willing to pay the deposit should it become 'uncancelled'.­ Otherwise, maybe next time (and I'll be sure to reserve a spot earlier).

      Hi Vinvent. The teaching material (eg. PowerPoint) will be in English. Presentation will depends on majority. If most prefer English, instructor will speak in English. But if most students prefer Chinese, I will also make sure there is English translator (aka. me) for you :)
