SCA Roasting Intermediate
Roasting Intermediate is a three day course which builds upon the introductory concepts of the Foundation course. It is ideal for someone who has some experience roasting and desires to gain a deeper understanding of the roast profile, how the profile relates to colour, the relationship between roast profile and sensory expression, and the impact of development time. Learners will further explore the physical and chemical changes as well as basic thermodynamics and heat transfer that occur during the roast. Thereafter there will be an introduction to sample roasting and a review of safety and maintenance protocols in the roasting plant.
Participation on this course does not require any prior modules being completed but the following courses are recommended:
- Introduction to Coffee
- Roasting Foundation
