SCA Coffee Brewing Foundation
This comprehensive coffee training course introduces the key skills and equipment required to properly brew coffee. Coffee professionals and enthusiasts alike will build a solid foundation of coffee brewing skills in this combination online and in-person Specialty Coffee Association course.
Through a pair of 90-minute interactive online webinars, we’ll introduce the art and science of brewing coffee. We'll discuss the essential elements of good brewing, learn about popular brewing devices, and discuss how small details of brewing techniques can affect the finished results.
We’ll also learn how to use our senses to evaluate brewed coffee, and how differences in the coffee’s seed-to-cup journey affect the finished brew. Along the way, we'll share brewing tips and bust myths to learn how to brew great coffee.
This course also includes a three-hour session in our Coffee Skills Campus Brewing lab. We’ll use a variety of popular brewing devices to explore how the essential elements of brewing can produce properly and improperly prepared coffee and taste the results.
