INTRODUCTION TO COFFEE
The SCA charges a fee for taking the SCA examination and awarding the certificates for each module. Education within each CSP module progresses from the Foundation Level to the Intermediate Level, and then to the Professional Level. Students who are qualified at the Intermediate and Professional level may wish to pursue a teaching profession and apply to attend the AST Train the Trainer Course.
This 1/2 day course is an ideal module for anyone who is new to the coffee industry or just has an interest in this wonderful drink. It charts coffee’s journey from its origins in Ethiopia to the major commodity it is today, enjoyed by millions of people around the world. From farming the cherries through drying, roasting, brewing and finally drinking, this module looks at the processes coffee goes through. This half day course also includes a “coffee cupping” which allows you to taste the various flavors coffee has to offer.
