The ideal course for working baristas and home enthusiasts!

This first level of the SCAA Barista Pathway accelerates a barista’s training by focusing on the range of espresso drinks, equipment operation and maintenance, and customer service. Upon completion, graduates will have developed their skills and knowledge opening opportunities in any coffee bar that stresses service and quality based on best practices of the Specialty Coffee Association.

In a 2014 SCAA study of the industry, Barista Pathway graduates have the potential to earn $200,000 more over their lifetime than baristas who are not certified. Being a professional is more than a paycheck, it’s about what you bring to the job including advanced skills and new insights into the craft of expertly preparing coffee.
