SCA Roasting Intermediate

Coffee Roasting for experienced roasters

You work daily as a coffee roaster. You have put together your own roast profiles and many consumers already enjoy your coffee. Yet you also run into issues that you would like to investigate further. After all, all different coffee beans require their own recipes to extract the best flavours.

If you recognize yourself, join the SCA Roasting Intermediate training.

The training lasts 3 days, including exam. Unless otherwise agreed in consultation.

If you have no experience with roasting coffee yet, we recommend that you first follow the SCA Roasting Foundation.

Get your SCA certificate and score 10 points from the SCA diploma system.
