The Specialty Coffee Association's (SCA) Education programs were created to help you develop your passion and sharpen your skills. Taught by Tom, our Head of Training and an Authorized SCA Trainer, the programs offer high-quality coffee education for every stage of your professional career.
This course also optionally includes certification for Barista One Baseline, the new practical certification from Barista Hustle. This demanding certification demonstrates to potential employers that you have not only the knowledge but also the skills to work quickly and efficiently behind the bar.

This course builds on the skills learned in Barista Skills Foundation, to equip the barista with all the skills they need to work in a busy, high-end speciality coffee bar.
This course is aimed at working baristas who have completed Barista Skills Foundation, or have an equivalent level of experience (3 months+). Completing Barista Skills Foundation beforehand is recommended but not required.
In this course, you will learn how to develop your own brew recipe, to extract the best flavour from any kind of coffee. We will explore how every variable in espresso affects extraction and flavour, and learn how to use a refractometer to measure these results in an objective way.
We will also develop an efficient, clean and high speed workflow, equipping you to work in a busy bar. The course will show you how to program a grinder and espresso machine to deliver a desired recipe.
Finally we will work on advanced latte art techniques, perfecting your presentation in the cup. Take home the 250g bag of your choice afterwards.
The course includes two internationally recognised qualifications:
- SCA's Barista Skills Intermediate certification, which includes a practical test and online written exam.
- Barista Hustle's Barista One Baseline certification, which requires completing an online course prior to attending, followed by a demanding practical test.
