Coffee Education


Earn SCA certification in the Visions world class Coffee Education Lab, a premier SCA Accredited Lab in Seattle.

Endorsed by the Barista Guild of America, the SCA Coffee Skills Program is a powerful step forward as you pursue a meaningful career in specialty coffee. In this two part package with hands on content, these courses were designed by industry experts to accelerate a student’s professional trajectory. In fact, in a 2014 study of the industry, the SCAA discovered that graduates have the potential to earn $200k more over their career lifespan than non-certified baristas.

All classes are taught on-site in the Visions accredited and state-of-the-art Coffee Education Lab in SODO, Seattle. Our Coffee Education Lab features a rotating lineup of high end, state-of-the-art gear, including: La Marzocco Linea EE, Nuova Simonelli Aurelia, Marco Jet Brewers and Ecosmart Boilers, Mahlkonig EK43 and K30 Espresso Grinders, Nuova Simonelli Mythos Clima Pro Espresso Grinders, Ditting Bulk Grinders, VST Refractometers and Extract Mojo Software, High Resolution Projection System.

Visions Education classes are designed to teach the elements of brewing great coffee to students of all experience levels and backgrounds. Our curriculum has been developed to emphasize current SCA standards while also providing flexibility for cafe owners, coffee enthusiasts, and baristas with a diverse group of needs and experience levels. Visions Education classes are a separate entity from SCA classes.
