Roasting and blending course online Sca Roasting Foundation

ROASTING AND BLENDING COURSE ONLINE

Directly from home, no needing journeys, bureaucracy and costs. Even in this way is possible to learn solid foundations for your coffee roasting and blending skills with the online course of Espresso Academy.

This course follows the classroom course program, of course it has a less important practical part, but it allows you to acquire, in one day all the knowledge necessary to work, perhaps with a your own roasting machine

In addition, with the new rules, this online cafeteria course allows you to access the SCA Roasting Foundation exam, directly from home!

 

The course is a very busy day to learn how the roasting interacts with coffee: how to enhance the body, aroma and taste and how to build the blend we want to offer to our customers. A large section of the course is devoted to cupping and tasting techniques, because tasting is the real bookmark of our experience!

During the course we begin from the evaluation of the green coffee, then how to choose the roasting machine for different uses. Then we examine the various phases and profiles of the roasting process and how they affect the characteristics of the roasted coffee.
