SCA Brewing Foundation

The SCA Brewing Foundation training is part of De Koffieopleiding & Barista training Level 1, training for baristas, coffee roasters and coffee sellers.

In the SCA Brewing Foundation training you will become acquainted with all variables that influence the quality of preparing filter coffee with various brewing methods. The difference between slow coffee and closed coffee becomes crystal clear. We familiarize you with the steps to prepare filter coffee. We occasionally refer to the espresso machine but mainly focus on alternative brewing methods.
