SCA Barista Skills Foundation
The Barista Skills Foundation course focuses on the key skills required to set a grinder, make espresso and foam, and texture milk for cappuccinos. This course allows one to gain an introductory understanding of the coffee itself and set a foundation from which to build practical skills for milk technique and latte art, while implementing health and safety practices and customer service. Practical learning objectives and activities prepare the learner to set a grinder and make espresso, foam and texture milk as per SCA foam quality standards and construct espresso-based drinks to SCA standards.
A written exam tests theoretical knowledge based on Foundation course learning objectives.
Participation on this course does not require any prior modules being completed but the following courses are recommended:
