Sensory skills is a course designed to help you better understand how you taste and perceive flavour which is then applied specifically to how we understand coffee’s quality.


This course covers the essentials of sensory evaluation. You will learn in a very practical and interactive manner the way we perceive what we taste and how to apply it to the evaluation of the intrinsic characteristics of coffee. It also offers an introduction to identify specialty coffee qualities and gain an overview on how to implement it in your business.


The course provides you with the key information to enable you to sit your Sensory Skills Foundation certification that consists of 4 short practical exams and a written exam (15 questions -pass rate of 60% required). Successful students will be awarded 5 points towards the SCAE Coffee Diploma.



This is a one day course for a maximum of 6 people, this cost does include VAT but does not cover the certification fee as this is dependent on your SCAE membership. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
