About The Event
The Barista Skills Professional course is designed to test advanced skills and detailed knowledge of the science behind processes used by a professional barista (for example, a barista with 12 months or more of work experience). Successful candidates will have explored and demonstrated the advanced skills typically expected of a head barista. In particular, participants will learn a sophisticated tasting methodology and descriptive explanation of coffee flavors; gain a detailed understanding of drink ingredients and the techniques available to maximize the quality of the drinks made; understand how to manage the skills of others to produce quality drinks; demonstrate an understanding of how to develop brew recipes and a systematic method of structuring beverage menus; and finally be able to consistently apply the highest standard of latte art and milk steaming techniques. A written exam tests professional course knowledge while a practical exam tests the skills described above based on different working activities carried out during the course. Upon the successful completion of the course and its online written exam, you will receive a professional level certificate from the Specialty Coffee Association and will earn 25 credits towards your SCA Coffee Skills Diploma.

About the Instructor
Trent Rollings has been in the specialty coffee industry since 2014. He began his journey into specialty coffee in the Philippines where he was first educated and interned at EDSA Beverage Design Studio. Eventually, he and his wife opened Narrative Coffee in the Philippines, a brew bar in the heart of the Makati business district. He went on to become a barista examiner for EDSA which led him to become a national judge for World Coffee Competitions in the Philippines. In 2018, he passed all qualification exams to become a sensory judge for the World Barista Championship and continues judging for national and world level coffee competitions. In late 2018, he moved to Antalya, Turkey with the goal of building the specialty coffee community in the city. In June of 2020, Trent co-founded Incommon, a 200sqm roastery, tasting bar, and coffee workshop located in Konyaaltı, Antalya and shortly after secured hıs accreditatıon as an Authorızed SCA Trainer (AST) in the tracks of Intro to Coffee, Barista Skills, and Brewing. In addition to judging and training, Trent also provides consultations for businesses who are looking to improve their coffee quality. His goal is to build a more collaborative, inclusive, and equitable coffee industry.
