In the SCA Coffee Roasting Professional course, students will learn advanced coffee roasting topics. We will study coffee from both a creative and scientific point-of-view. This course is designed for experienced coffee roasting professionals. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to roast coffee on our San Franciscan™ coffee roasters.
SCA Coffee Roasting Professional Topics
The SCA Coffee Roasting Professional class will cover advanced coffee roasting concepts. First, we will review core roasting topics and farm-to-cup processes. After, we will explore current coffee roasting techniques including advanced heat transfer, physical and chemical aspects of roast coffee, and more. Additionally, students will discuss sensory aspects of roasted coffees following the SCA-certified cupping protocol. Upon completion of the course, students will take the SCA Coffee Roasting Professional test. If students pass, they will receive 25 points toward their SCA Coffee Skills Diploma.
Using a Hands-On Approach to Roast Better Coffee
At the Coffee Roasting Institute, we believe the best way to learn how to roast coffee is by roasting coffee. For that reason, we will never make you sit through a lecture or slideshow. Using one of our six San Franciscan™ roasters, students will learn how to roast coffee with direct, hands-on training. Simultaneously, instructors will explain the various roasting tools and techniques, so you can roast better coffee!
