If you’ve already completed Foundation level courses or are already working as a barista and want to advance your skill set, then this is the course for you!
This course is a significant progression on from the Foundation level, designed to test the more advanced skills and understanding expected from a speciality barista.
Working on professional equipment, we will focus primarily upon taste, flavour and workflow. You will learn how brew recipes can be manipulated by a variation in dose, timing and water temperature, and how these factors can optimise pretty much any coffee. You will also look closely at techniques for maximising your output, quality and consistency in work-based environment.
You will finish this course able to dial-in a brew recipe and make a full range of drinks with quality, speed and efficiency.
• Coffee bean types
• Grinding, dosing and tamping
• Workspace management
• Milk technique
• Espresso-based beverages
• Customer service, hygiene, health and safety
Successful candidates should be able to dial in a brew recipe, make a full range of drinks with maximum efficiency, as well as understand the basic requirements for customer service and maintenance.
Candidates attending this course should have passed the Foundation level or have at least three months’ experience working as a barista.
SCA Barista Skills Intermediate is a 2-day long course.
This course is globally accredited via the Speciality Coffee Association (SCA) and you can take the optional SCA Certified Exam at the end of the second day at an additional cost of £60 which will earn you 10 points towards your Coffee Skills Programme.
