SCA Sensory Skills Foundation covers the essentials of sensory evaluation. You will learn about the way we perceive what we taste and how to apply it to the evaluation of the intrinsic characteristics of coffee, in a very practical and interactive manner. It also offers an introduction to identify specialty coffee qualities and gain an overview on how to implement it in your day-to-day. No prior knowledge is needed before taking this module.
“What is Specialty Coffee” is a pre-class introductory workshop that teaches basic coffee concepts and introduces specialty coffee tasting which will be applied to all SCA Foundation classes. This workshop is provided at no extra cost and all students are strongly encouraged to attend as it eases you into the SCA framework.
What you will learn:
The workshop is conducted on weekdays and weekends. You can select the date for your complimentary workshop from your confirmation email.
The course fee includes 1 online theory and 1 practical test.
Any subsequent retests will be charged as follows:
Written retest - S$40.00
Practical retest - S$80.00
Students may also opt to not do the assessments if they choose to. There will be no SCA certification given in this case, but a certificate of completion from Bettr Barista.
We require a minimum number of 3 learners to run each class. If the number of sign-ups does not meet this requirement, learners will be notified and have their class rescheduled to the next available date.
