The Sensory Skills Professional course builds on the concepts and skills introduced in the Sensory Skills Intermediate course and prepares the learner for managerial job functions in the sensory evaluation of coffee and related products. In this interactive course, learners gain alignment with industry coffee and sensory standards; learn about the implementation of sensory evaluation in a coffee business; acquire the skills
required to start identifying and evaluating qualities in specialty green coffee; and demonstrate how to accurately measure and describe coffee beverage characteristics.
Participants will learn how to generate repeatable and methodical sensory measurements of coffee, along with interpretation of those results. 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.
