Modules included in this Duo:

  • SCA Sensory Skills Foundation
  • SCA Roasting Foundation


-----

1. SCA Sensory Skills Foundation
Sensory Foundation introduces the essentials of sensory evaluation, by investigating how our senses influence perception and how to apply this knowledge when evaluating coffee.

Learners gain the ability to differentiate certain sensorial aspects of coffee including body, acidity, bitterness, and more. The course introduces fragrance identification references and also focuses on the purpose and procedure for conducting an SCA cupping. Learners gain insight into identifying specialty coffee qualities, as well as an overview of how to implement this in business.

2. SCA Roasting Foundation
Roasting Foundation gives the learner an understanding of the roasting process, including the physical changes that take place during the process and how to control sensory aspects of the coffee by roasting light or dark. Learners will also gain an understanding of the basic structure of the roasting machine, general maintenance, and fire prevention.

Practical learning objectives and activities prepare the learner to follow instructions given by the trainer, for three different roasts and record relevant data and observations per roast using a suitable roast log.

Who Should Attend
