The Specialty Coffee Association’s Brewing Foundation Certificate is designed to introduce core brewing skills and equipment to people with little or no previous hand pour brewing experience. Successful candidates should be able to grind and brew to the correct recipe and produce great coffee on multiple brewing devices.

Specifically, by doing hands on exercises and tasting, you will develop a greater understanding of the following concepts:

  • Coffee’s flavor varies based upon differing varietals, countries of origin and roast styles.
  • Coffee’s flavor varies based upon differing coffee to water ratios, grind particle sizes and brewing devices.
  • Coffee’s flavor varies throughout the brewing process.
  • The key elements of good coffee brewing and the differentiation between proper and improper brewing.
  • The optimum balance between strength and extraction.
