The SCAA Coffee Taster Certificate Program is SCAA's newest professional Certificate. Attendees of this workshop can complete 6 of the Module 1 requirements toward the Coffee Taster Certificate. SCAA education is unique in that it is all constructed by collaboration of industry experts who might otherwise be considered competitors, working together to establish agreed upon knowledge and skills that truly represent the industry best practices. All SCAA classes may be applied toward one or sometimes more than one of our Professional Certificate programs, which indicate a high level of competence in knowledge and skills required for the various job positions in specialty coffee businesses. SCAA Education is an exceptional and affordable way to gain success in the specialty coffee industry.

Additionally, this workshop is part of a pilot program available only until July 1, 2013, where SCAA and the network of independent SCAA Certified Teaching Lab partners are testing this type of event as a means to improve access and opportunities to pursue SCAA Education and Professional Certificates. Please see the individual class descriptions located at the professional development page on our website for more information.

Instructor: Rocky Rhodes, Owner, International Coffee Consulting
Rocky has been immersed in the coffee industry since 1997. After learning to roast, retail, and prepare the beverage it became clear that there was a hole for the coffee professional. After Volunteering and assisting Ted Lingle to Teach a Q-Grader Class, Rocky decided to commit to the education of the coffee community at large. With that, ICC was founded.
