SCAA Reschedules Three-Day Skill-Building Event in Cleveland for January
What: The SCAA Three-Day Skill-Building Workshop Event in Cleveland, Ohio has been rescheduled for Jan. 18-20, 2008. Due to area flooding, which affected the workshop’s venue, Phoenix Coffee Roastery, the event, which was originally slated for Sept. 14-16, is being reset.
Since most of the damage occurring was confined to its barista training area, Phoenix Coffee Roastery was able to maintain continuous service to its customers. In addition to repairing the affected area of its building, Phoenix Coffee Roastery plans to add two built-in espresso training stations and improve its cupping room and sample roasting area in time for the January SCAA Skill-Building Workshop event. Phoenix Coffee Roastery also managed to stay on schedule with the opening of its fifth retail location in Cleveland Heights on Aug. 20.
The coffee skill-enhancing event – which features six workshops – provides coffee professionals with expert training on preparing espresso, cupping (or taste testing), coffee brewing fundamentals and barista development. The classes – taught by experienced coffee professionals – are ideal for people of all levels including entrepreneurs interested in opening a café as well as existing owners and others seeking to strengthen their coffee skills.
The SCAA Three-Day Skill-Building Workshop is open to SCAA members as well as non-SCAA members. The cost for SCAA members to attend is $95 – with the exception of the Professional Development for the Working Barista course, which costs $125. The cost for non-SCAA members to attend any of the skill-building courses is $195 – with the exception of the Professional Development for the Working Barista – which costs $170.
