Coffee Skills Program Foundation Course (7 Days): Barista (2 Days), Green (1 Day), Sensory (1 Day), Roasting (2 Day) & Brewing (1 Day)

A seven days workshop, hosted by Bicerin Coffee Lab, offers the opportunity to take 5 foundation courses of Barista, Green, Sensory, Roasting and Brewing together under the new SCA curriculum. The foundation courses provide students with a comprehensive overview of basic concept regarding coffee roasting, coffee tasting and coffee making by using espresso machine. It will give you the key information to enable you to find your Barista, Roasting, and Sensory skills on a fundamental level. We recommend any coffee people with no or very limited experience to start from this level.
Barista Foundation:
Designed to introduce core barista skills to people with no previous barista experience. Successful candidates should be able to calibrate their grinders and make an espresso and cappuccino to core standards.

Sensory Foundation:
Expose and sensitize student on the notion of specialty vs non-specialty coffee. Enabling the student to recognize the core concepts of sensory analysis, and explain why and how coffee professionals use it in the coffee industry. Broad focus will be put on identifying, describing and discriminating objectively aroma, taste and body in coffees. Students will be introduced to the SCA cupping protocol and methodology and reflect on the qualitative dimension of this evaluation methodology.
