This is a course designed to introduce fundamental brewing skills and the main types of brewing equipment. This is suitable for people with no previous brewing experience of any type. By the end of the SCA Foundation level of the Brewing module, we’ll have attendees confidently understanding the logic behind successful recipes, then grinding and brewing to produce great coffee to meet different needs.


The course will be with Ollie at the Academy, and will consist of around 6 hours of teaching plus time for practical examinations. The course also provides you with the key information to enable you to sit your Brewing Skills Foundation written exam (pass rate of 60% required). Successful students will be awarded 5 points towards the SCA Coffee Diploma. Should you want to access the 5 points/certification, you must select ‘Yes’ from the dropdown menu titled ‘Exam Fee/Certification’ – you will then be sent an invoice for £55 which is the amount payable for the cost of the written exam.


This is a one day course for a maximum of 6 people, this cost does include VAT and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
