Analyse your work as an experienced barista.

The SCA barista skills intermediate training is suitable for baristas with professional experience who are able to make an espresso and cappuccino according to the parameters and work rules of the SCA. For those who are looking to improve and deepen their work.

In the intermediate training we go deeper into these skills. In the intermediate training it is all about the analysis of the results. Does what is prepared meet the standard, based on measured factors and taste? In addition, we work on the multi-order in the training and Latte Art is a fixed part.
