SCA Member 2018

In May 2017, I completed a set of professional Barista exams at the koffieschool in Utrecht, the Netherlands. They are certified by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) and recognized and valued by hospitality people world-wide.

  • Introduction to Coffee
  • Barista Skills Foundation
  • Barista Skills Intermediate
  • Brewing Foundation
  • Brewing Intermediate
  • Sensory Skills Foundation
  • Roasting Foundation
  • Latte Art

This implies that I can function as a Head Barista in any coffee shop, maintain and calibrate the espresso machines daily, choose the right beans to match a certain desired flavor, set and maintain the grinders and adjust the coffee recipes to maintain a fixed flavor profile throughout the day. I am capable of producing 300-350 coffees per 8 hour workday with the right equipment and workflow.

Below is a list of recent experiences.
