If you’re thinking about a career change, are a coffee enthusiast or are just interested to learn more about the journey from Farm to Cup, this is the place to start.
Based on the SCA Modules of Green Coffee, Sensory, Roasting, Brewing and Barista, you will learn about:
- the way harvest, process and roast affect flavour
- how to taste like a professional
- hand brewing and extraction theory
- espresso technique
You can attend this course purely for enjoyment, but it has very often been the doorway into a career in coffee – the variety of topics covered makes it a great way to get an overview of the different pathways that you might follow.
The course is globally accredited via the Speciality Coffee Association (SCA) – if you take the optional SCA Certified Exam (£55), you earn 10 points towards your SCA Coffee Skills Programme.
SCA Introduction to Coffee is a half-day class, running from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. Please allow an additional hour if you choose to take the SCA Certified Exam.
