SCA Barista Skills Foundation PLUS

SCA Barista training for the (starting) professional barista

The SCA Barista Foundation plus training is a two-day Barista Training. The training is suitable for the starting barista without experience in the catering industry and the catering employee without barista experience.

In the SCA Barista Skills Foundation PLUS training, the basic actions and knowledge of the barista profession are taught as determined by the SCA. We work on the espresso machine and with the coffee grinder. The (regular) SCA Barista Skills Foundation training aims to prepare and present a good cappuccino (and espresso) in an efficient and hygienic manner. Because the guest asks for more than just these two drinks, we also treat the other drinks from the coffee menu in the PLUS training. This therefore takes 2-2.5 half days (including skills test). A latte art training will also take place on the third day. You can book this extra.

The training can be booked separately, but is also part of the Coffee Training program and the Barista Training Level 1.

The training is offered in groups.
