SCAA Foundations Of Coffee

The Foundations of Coffee course by the SCAA is designed to lay the groundwork for a life in coffee. This course is a foundation introducing the other SCAA Pathways building coffee vocabulary; while expanding critical topics to coffee such as agronomy, earth sciences, economics, and sociology along the global supply chain.

This overview of "the seed to cup journey" explores how the senses and chemistry meet in practical experiences including: coffee tastings, cuppings, and flavor perception. Beyond this theoretical and practical workings of brewing and extraction are explored.

Foundations of Coffee should prepare students for other Pathways with a comprehensive overview in both big-picture coffee trade and minutia details in coffee craft.
