    SCA CSP: Barista Skills Intermediate

    Join PCR as we host the Barista Skills Intermediate course of SCA’s Coffee Skills Program. This course will be taught by our dear friend & international barista trainer Zoey Thorson of Felix Roasting Company.

    The Barista Skills Intermediate course is designed to test core knowledge and to introduce more advanced barista skills and understanding expected from a competent specialty coffee professional. In this 2.5-day course, students will learn to quickly and consistently dial in a brew recipe, make a full range of drinks with quality and speed, as well as understand basic requirements for customer service and workspace maintenance. The first two days are spent covering lecture topics and tasting exercises with exams in between; the last day will involve remaining exams for certification.

    Topics in this course include:
    Understanding the Bean
    Coffee Freshness for Espresso
    Workspace Management
    Espresso Parameters
    Milk Chemistry & Steaming Mechanics
    Customer Service
    Equipment Cleaning & Troubleshooting
    Cafe Management

    Introduction to Coffee and Barista Foundation are recommended (but not mandatory) prerequisite modules. All knowledge and skills from these modules will be assumed as being held and may be tested through the practical and/or written assessments in order to complete Barista Intermediate.
