SCA Barista Skills Intermediate

For: Working baristas looking to deepen their competency

Description

SCA Barista Skills Intermediate starts with deeper understanding of the coffee itself; its varieties, origins and processing methods and how they impact on flavour. It then builds on the Foundation level making sure baristas can calibrate the quantity of coffee used, grind texture, water quantity and shot time, to produce a desired espresso brew recipe.

We also begin to examine how these parameters can lead to a “balanced” espresso and make sure the barista can identify acidity, sweetness and bitterness within different parts of the espressos extraction. Milk techniques are developed with the baristas needing to produce a couple of drinks with a latte art pattern.

Learners will make a full range of drinks with quality and speed, as well as understand the basic requirements for customer service, hygiene and maintenance.

For Shaun, I really appreciate your opinion and for sharing the rationale behind the content taught, not just as a barista, but in approaching the profession as a stakeholder of the cafe.

For Levina, thank you for being unbelievably friendly and open-minded in sharing barista techniques and working experiences for me to relate to.

I loved that both trainers gave constructive feedback on my practical skills and barista routines that would be transferable to the cafe workplace. Marcus Leong - Apr 19
