The SCA Coffee Diploma is the most comprehensive and cost-effective way to learn and achieve the highest level of qualification within the coffee industry. Students receive points for each qualification they receive, and once they achieve the 100 points necessary, they receive their Coffee Diploma!

The Coffee Diploma System allows you to choose the path that most suits your needs.

The four modules we offer are:


You gain points for each qualification completed and when you have achieved 100 points you will be awarded your overall diploma. It’s your choice on the qualifications and modules you take to get your 100 points. The points are awarded as follows:

Introduction to Coffee

This module is for anyone who is new to the coffee industry or has an interest in this wonderful drink. It charts coffee’s journey from its origins in Ethiopia to the major commodity it is today, from farming the cherries through drying, roasting, brewing and finally drinking (4 hours).



The Foundation level provides a first taste of a particular module. It’s a great way to get initial insight into the basic skills in an area and help you decide if you want to go on to learn more!

  • The Foundation level requires no previous experience.
  • Course at this level takes 1 day (usually between 9:30am – 4:30pm).



The Intermediate level is suitable for those already working in the industry with a firm knowledge of the basic skills.

  • Experience working in the field is recommended before attempting this level, but not necessary.
  • Courses at this level take 2 days.



The Professional level is suitable for those wanting to pursue specialist knowledge in a given module.

  • Candidates must already hold the Intermediate qualification in the same module.
  • Courses at this level take 3 days.
