Designed for head barista and/ or other coffee professional who want to further refine their barista skills.
The professional level course is ultimate test of barista advanced skills and detailed knowledge of the science behind processes used by a professional barista (for example, a barista with 12 months or more of work experience). Successful candidates will have explored and demonstrated the advanced skills typically expected of a head barista. In particular, participants will learn a sophisticated tasting methodology and descriptive explanation of coffee flavors; gain a detailed understanding of drink ingredients and the techniques available to maximize the quality of the drinks made, understand how to manage the skills of others to produce quality drinks, demonstrate an understanding of how to develop brew recipes and a systematic method of structuring beverage menus, and finally be able to consistently apply the highest standard of latte art and milk steaming techniques.
Acceptance of students not studied our Foundation and Intermediate Courses, will be evaluated and assessed individually, to ensure meeting of requirement to SCA Professional Level.
