Danes Specialty Coffee Institute

From the September 2016 issue.

For years, Danes has been sharing its world-class knowledge and methods to help baristas enhance the workplace.

Well-trained staff are integral to a successful specialty coffee business. With this in mind, Danes Specialty Coffee Institute (DSCI) has created the ultimate specialty coffee training facility. Using only the most current, best-practice methods in the industry, DSCI built a reputation as an outstanding centre for specialty coffee knowledge.

Located in Brookvale on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the facility offers the most comprehensive specialty coffee training program for baristas in Australia. Danes is the only Australian licensed training partner of the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA). This enables DSCI to deliver the SCAA International Professional Development Program (IDP).

The SCAA is the world’s largest coffee trade association, and its training program is recognised as a world leader in specialty coffee development and training.

A wide range of barista courses developed in-house is on offer at DSCI, as are SCAA certified courses. DSCI’s robust course offering includes Le Nez du Café, Specialty Alternate Brewing Workshop, Espresso Bar Efficiency and Workflow, and Seed to Cup.

Since its formation in 1999, DSCI has welcomed thousands of international and Australian students, arming them with the skills they need to provide world-class coffee to an increasingly discerning customer base. DSCI trainers are highly motivated, accredited teaching professionals with a true passion for specialty coffee development, and have completed all components of the SCAA IDP.
