SCA Certified Trainings.

Barista Studio is certified by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA). We offer the following trainings, and you can enroll at three different levels: Foundation, Intermediate, and Professional. The groups are small, and you’ll be taught by a real professional. And always tailored to your preferences; you decide where and when you want to attend the training. Of course, you are always welcome in our studio in Schiedam.

More about SCA

The training levels are categorized as Foundation, Intermediate, and Professional. Foundation is the starting point for those with no experience. If you’ve been working in hospitality for a while, or have experience as a barista or with a coffee machine, you can enter at Intermediate with a Foundation certificate. Professional is designed for those working as a barista for over a year with an Intermediate certificate.

Each training concludes with a practical and theory exam. Passing both exams awards you an SCA certificate.

Introduction to Coffee is a foundational course with more theory than practice, focusing on coffee facts and its surrounding world. This course involves only a theory exam, also resulting in a certificate.

For all SCA courses, you earn points: Foundation 5 points, Intermediate 10 points, Professional 25 points. Completing all courses (Barista, Brewing, Sensory, Green Coffee, Roastery) earns you an SCA Coffee Diploma.
