Course SCA Barista Skills Foundation
|Do you want to work as Barista or are you a huge coffee lover and would you like to expand your knowledge? With the SCA Barista Skills Foundation training you gain a solid foundation for your further career in coffee! This training is accredited by the SVH and, after completing your exam, you can apply for the internationally recognized SCA certificate.
After discussing the theoretical foundation the day will be mainly filled with practicing. In the theoretical section we explain differences between coffee beans, how extraction works, which methods there are to make espresso and discuss hygiene in the workplace. By experimenting a lot you learn to recognize the difference between sour, bitter, strong and weak. During practice you will operate the espresso machine yourself.
In short: A day with crucial background knowledge and lots and lots of experimentation and practice!
|One day (7 hours). We start at 10 am, we finish at 5 pm.|
|This course is designed to introduce basic barista skills to people who have had no previous training.|
|It is essential to be able to practice at home/work. If you do not have an espresso machine to work with at home or at work, try to find a bar or restaurant in your neighborhood to practice. ITC Academy offers planned evenings to practice at our training center for those who have no espresso machine at their disposal.|
|Coffee roasters, buyers, vendors, employees working with coffee, private individuals who would like to learn basic barista skills.
This training has been developed to introduce the basic skills of a Barista to people who have not yet followed a Barista training.
|The SCA Barista Skills Foundation exam is held on a later date. This date will be determined, depending on the time you need to practice. The exam lasts about 1.5 hours and consists of a theory and a practical part. Are you ready for the exam? Please contact us to schedule your exam. We have scheduled regular examination evenings in both Zeewolde and The Hague every month.|
