SCA Barista

SCA Certificate - Barista Skills (Intermediate)

It is recommended that you have some experience of working in this field before attempting this level or have successfully passed Barista Skills Foundation. Established baristas may want to start at Intermediate Level.
The course starts with deeper understanding of the coffee itself; its varieties, origins and processing methods and how they impact on flavour.

It then builds on the Foundation level making sure baristas can calibrate the quantity of coffee used, the grind texture, the water quantity and the shot time, to produce a desired espresso brew recipe.
We start to look how these parameters can lead to a “balanced” espresso and make sure the barista can identify acidity, sweetness and bitterness within different parts of the espressos extraction.

Milk techniques are also developed with the baristas needing to produce a couple of drinks with a latte art pattern.
Also, to reflect the need for both speed and quality, the barista will learn to work efficiently, making an order of drinks while maintaining good procedure and drink quality.

The baristas will learn more about their equipment, such as the pros and cons of different styles of grinder, how to plan their work space, and basic care and maintenance.
As well as this the course touches on other aspects like customer service, health safety and hygiene, and the profit earned by their drinks.

The course provides you with the key information to enable you to sit your Barista Skills Intermediate certification that consists of 4 short practical tests and a written exam (pass rate of 70% required).
Successful students will be awarded the SCA Coffee Skills Program certificate.

Introduction to Coffee and Barista Foundation are recommended (but not mandatory) pre-requisite modules.
