Designed for every coffee professional, the SCA Coffee Skills Program is recognised world wide.

At our training academy we offer 3 modules:
Introduction to Coffee – learn about coffee’s journey from growing the cherries through to grading, roasting and brewing, and understanding the coffee value chain.
Barista Skills – gain the practical skills needed behind the espresso bar. Learn how to set your grinder; milk techniques and latte art; Health and Safety; customer service; basic business practices.
Brewing – understand the variety of methods for brewing coffee and the variables that affect quality. The Brewing module provides hands-on learning on grind profiles, brewing methods, measuring coffee strength and charting a coffee’s extraction.
