SCA Introduction to Coffee
Explore the width and breadth of coffee’s seed-to-cup journey in this combination online and in-person Specialty Coffee Association course. This class is ideal for coffee professionals and enthusiasts alike to learn more about our favorite beverage.
Through a pair of 90-minute interactive online webinars we’ll learn how to critically taste coffee and then follow along from the farm where it is grown, through processing, roasting, preparation, and finally drinking, discussing how each step of this journey impacts the cup. These online sessions also include time for discussing questions and debunking common misconceptions.
Then, in a one-hour hands-on session in our Coffee Skills Campus, students are introduced to two important skills for coffee professionals: cupping and brewing.
This course is strongly recommended as a prerequisite for all other Coffee Skills Program courses.
