🆕   Course Announced!

The Barista Skills Professional course is designed to test advanced skills and detailed knowledge of the science behind processes used by a professional barista (for example, a barista with 12 months or more of work experience). Successful candidates will have explored and demonstrated the advanced skills typically expected of a head barista. In particular, participants will learn a sophisticated tasting methodology and descriptive explanation of coffee flavors; gain a detailed understanding of drink ingredients and the techniques available to maximize the quality of the drinks made, understand how to manage the skills of others to produce quality drinks,
demonstrate an understanding of how to develop brew recipes and a systematic method of structuring beverage menus, and finally be able to consistently apply the highest standard of latte art and milk steaming techniques. A written exam tests professional course knowledge while a practical exam tests the skills described above based on different working activities carried out during the course.

Courses at this level are worth 25 point towards SCA Coffee Skills Diploma and are given over a period of 5 days including time for testing and potentially test retakes. 

Prerequisites: Barista Skills Intermediate.

Brewing Intermediate is recommended.

The ideal candidate has worked as a barista for a minimum of 12 months, in a role with some managerial responsibilities.

This course requires at least 3 persons registered.
