Green Coffee Intermediate is a 2 days course, broken down into 3 areas:

Key differences in the botany of the Coffee species are explored, along with variations in farming practices. This first part covers an explanation of differences in processing techniques for the production of specialty coffee, along with insight into how these techniques change the cup profile of coffee. 

II.INTRODUCTION TO GREEN COFFEE GRADING

You will then learn how to physically examine green coffee samples, identify physical defects, and use key equipment needed for effective quality assessment of green coffee.

III. COFFEE CONTRACTS AND GREEN COFFEE PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT

At an intermediate level basic market principles that are involved in pricing changes of all coffee sectors are explored. In addition to the structure of markets this module also shows you how to create coffee green contracts with suppliers and customers. Among many others, you will look at how to apply your knowledge of seasonality in coffee cropping, along with shipping and storage knowledge to stock holding patterns.

The course provides you with the key information to enable you to sit your Green Coffee Intermediate certification* that consists of 4 short practical exams and a written exam (25 questions with a pass rate of 70% required). Successful students will be awarded 10 points towards the SCA Coffee Diploma.
