Coffee Roaster Level One (SCAA)



Master and refine your roasting techniques, learn about the essence of quality, improve your tasting skills, and become accredited by the SCAA! This course is very suitable for beginning professionals or for roasters who want to expand their coffee horizon with new concepts about roasting practices and tasting protocols. The course provides a solid introduction into roasting profiling, both from a theoretical as well as from a practical point of view. As with all our courses, we allow for sufficient one-one-one interaction with the lead-trainers. This 4-day course is also specifically designed for coffee professionals who wish to become SCAA certified. We are happy to announce that Willem Boot will personally share with you his extensive knowledge; from the intricate design of roasting profiles to roasting techniques of truly exotic coffees, like his award winning Geisha. The course provides solid hands-on training on various roasting systems and there will be sufficient opportunity to put your roasting profiles to the test during our cupping sessions.
