DamSu: I heard wuri Yong Joon already passed the qualifying exam and is already a certified Q-grader. According to some rumors, the qualifying exam for this certification is very difficult with only 10% passing rate. You need to take 22 exams in order to become a Q-grader. So what's a Q-grader? A Q-grader is not just a so-so certification. According to my readings, a Q-grader is considered an expert in the field of coffee. Someone who can tell the difference between super good coffee and good coffee. Q-graders can tell if a batch of green, unroasted coffee beans has the potential to become a great cup of coffee or a mediocre cup of coffee. The certification is also internationally recognized. If the wine industry has sommeliers, the coffee industry has Q-graders. To learn more, you may want to click this LINK.
