SCA Introduction to coffee

The coffee world has more to offer than just preparing coffee. After all, before the coffee ends up in your cup, it has been planted, harvested, processed, traded, roasted and prepared. If you are going to work with coffee, it is not a superfluous luxury to know more about the origin of your product.

The Introduction to Coffee training is intended to introduce you to coffee and coffee production. If you don’t know exactly what you want to do with coffee yet – roast, prepare or sell – then this training will help you determine which direction suits you best.

The training is part of the SCA Coffee Skills Program. It is also included in the training programs.

The training courses are offered both online and in class. The number of participants consists of a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 participants.
