SCA Coffee Skills Program: Brewing Intermediate
Join PCR as we host the Brewing Module of SCA’s Coffee Skills Program. This course will be taught by our dear friend & international barista trainer Zoey Thorson of Felix Roasting Company.
This 2.5-day course expands on the SCA Brewing Foundation course and is designed to introduce the concept of scientifically measuring coffee extraction. The first two days will cover lecture topics and practice exercises with some exams, while the third day will involve any remaining exams for certification. We will explore the elements of coffee brewing and how they effect extraction. Brewing intermediate helps coffee professionals manipulate brewing techniques and parameters to alter extraction and measure brew cycles with the goal of improving coffee quality in the cup.
Topics covered in this course include:
History & Science of Brewing
Strength vs Extraction
Measuring Filter & Espresso
Brewing Guidelines & Mechanics
Effects of Roast Level
