Kickstart your roasting career

What?

On the SCA Roasting Foundation you are taken through the most important fundamentals of the roasting process to understand what roasting is, and how you can control it. Whether you plan to roast professionally or as a hobby, the Foundation course covers what you need to know to get started. The course includes theoretical and hands-on practical aspects to maximize your learning.

Why?

Starting something new always includes hours of trial and error. By completing this course you will have a much better understanding of how to approach the roasting machine, and how the basic modulations lead to different flavour profiles. You will understand the basics of how the machine works which enables you to troubleshoot and solve problems that may arise. Lastly, through hands on experience and access to a variety of roast machine technologies on the course you will improve your confidence when approaching any other roaster.

How?

The course is split into three main parts. First, the theoretical introduction to roasting and roast logging. You will learn about the process from green to roasted beans, types of heat transfer and burner technologies. On the second day you'll get hands on experience on a coffee roaster. You get the opportunity to roast on our 1kg sample roasters, taste the effect of varied roast degree, and see how the daily operation functions in a larger roastery at Kontra Coffee. Finally, to get your SCA Roasting Foundation certificate you will go through an exam to prove your newly gained skills and knowledge.
