SCA Introduction To Coffee Course
A course covering coffee's journey from farm to cup, introducing the students to all of the key concepts in Speciality Coffee. This is the perfect course if you’re thinking about a career change, or are a coffee enthusiast who’s interested in learning more about all aspects of coffee.
Important note on SCA certification & fees
All SCA courses include the certification process. Please note that a mandatory Course Enrollment Fee of €25 is payable directly to the SCA, in addition to the course fee stated on our website. You can find more information here, and will need to register as a Learner with the SCA before the date of your course.
This course is based on the SCA modules of Green Coffee, Sensory, Roasting and Brewing. You’ll learn about the history of coffee and the way growing, processing and roasting affect the flavour of the final cup. We’ll work on developing our sensory skills and put them to the test in a coffee tasting, learning how professionals identify and describe taste and flavour of different coffees.
We’ll cover filter brewing, brew recipes and extraction theory, and practise pour-over brewing using the Hario V60 brewer, and finish the course with water essentials. You can attend this course purely for enjoyment, but it has 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.
