Customer Reviews

  • Road & Rail Infrastrucure Taster Program | review from Jane Ong

    29 November 2022

      "The Barista Coffee Course of SCA is a great introductory course for all. It has an excellent mix of fun, fact, and flavor. Rachel handled our class professionally, her lectures backed by years of experience running a restaurant/cafe. She not only explained the ?what? and ?how? but the ?why? as well. We were encouraged to have hands-on barista experience with different coffee menus and milk combinations throughout the day, which included preparing the machine at the start of the day and cleaning it at closing time. We also had unlimited coffee-tasting sessions. The place was clean, and the class atmosphere was robust and relaxed. I improved a lot after the class and learned to appreciate the art of coffee making even more. It was such a great experience that I plan to enroll in SCA?s other courses to complement this newfound skill."
