Many will read about this course and wonder: but if I can't really roast coffee, what can I learn from an online coffee roasting course?

A lot, starting from the fact that even in classroom courses the theory is always very important, for example to understand:

  • The various stages of roasting: drying, cinnamon, 1st crack, development, 2nd crack
  • What is the right machine for my business? Dimensions, materials, probes and software
  • The concept of roasting profile and how to best manage it


This course can give possible access to two international certifications, both widespread and recognized in the world: IBC and SCA

In both cases, once you have finished watching the video course, you can start the certification procedure. The theoretical exam will be sent directly from the association (not from Espresso Academy), followed by a live session with the trainer which will also include the practical exam.

  • For IBC this course gives access to the Roast & Cup basic level exam and to the relative stamp in the passport "coffee specialist" the total cost of the procedure is €40

  • For SCA this course gives access to the roasting Foundation exam and costs €138

Our instructor-Gabriele shares all the techniques and secrets to make a perfect espresso and cappuccino, plus the coffee art which every participants were so excited and enjoyed every hands-on. As part of the Advanced level course, Gabriele also gave us a tour inside their processing plant. A highly recommended tour if you're visiting Florence both for individual who's looking for a career in coffee industry or simply Coffee lovers.
  • Great experience ! It's fun, very interactive , the trainers are really interested that you learn and practice a lot, before you apply for your certificate.

  • Had an amazing two days here going all the way from the roasting room, blends and the theory, but most importantly a lot of practice at making good espressos and cappuccinos with assistance from the instructors, through to the SCA exams. Very friendly and helpful instructors and I can highly recommend the Espresso Academy! A great experience and great knowledge gained. Thank you to all at Espresso Academy and Mokaflor, I highly recommend you all!
