A fun half-day course that introduces the novice to all the key concepts in Speciality Coffee.
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 and how to taste like a professional. We're also covering hand brewing and extraction theory, as well as water essentials.
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.
