My name is Michael Butterworth. I am an Authorized SCA Trainer and the inventor of the Etkin Dripper I also moonlight as a food & beverage writer. You can read my work in Life & Thyme, Whetstone, Fresh Cup Magazine, or the website I co-founded: thecoffeecompass.com.
As a former English teacher and barista competitor, I have a unique combination of experience in both adult education and the specialty coffee industry. I’ve taught SCA courses in America, Turkey, Cyprus, and Morocco and offer courses in both English and Turkish. I can also offer Introduction to Coffee and Foundation-level courses in an online format.
