Following is a brief trip report of my visit to the SCC at the Schaerer Headquarters in Switzerland:
SCC-Welcome.jpg (149731 bytes) First we got a warm welcome from the Schaerer Team in Switzerland, well known for their hospitality. Flying the Flags of all the Countries of the Schaerer Representatives taking the SCC Training.
SCC-Roaster.jpg (105321 bytes) After a hard day of classroom training in all aspects of coffee, we finally got to the fun part in determining the custom blend we want to try.

We all agreed to come up with a blend to be used with the pressure brew method which is gaining world wide in popularity.

With some help from our Roast Master and SCC Trainer Ingo Rogalla we decided on a blend. After the roast was done, we were in for a  surprise. The traditional cupping of our custom blend  resulted in a unanimous "undrinkable" vote. However, just by changing the water temperature and trying the pressure brew method we noticed already many varying factors influencing the end result, just as we learned the previous day.
SCC-Ingo.jpg (144157 bytes) After changing some percentages of the blend we actually got to a blend that we all agreed to be excellent. Off course the recipe is strictly our secret...
SCC-Barista.jpg (90217 bytes) Make no mistake, even though we do represent Super Automatic Technology, Ingo put us through a vigorous Barista training on a traditional Espresso Machine.
SCC-Heart.jpg (33270 bytes) Some of us even managed to prepare specialty coffee drinks decorated with hearts.
SCC-Leaf.jpg (36703 bytes) Specialty coffee menus may consist of hundreds of different drinks and presentation methods.
SCC-Machiato.jpg (39134 bytes) It was my turn to show-case the preparation of a Latte Machiato. Representing Schaerer Super Automatic Technology for many years, I didn't know better and walked up to the Schaerer OTTO and pushed the Machiato button on the Machine, and voila, 30 seconds later a beautiful Machiato was on the table... sorry, but I always prefer it the easy way...
SCC-Class.jpg (121334 bytes) Between the hard lessons there was always time to mingle together and discuss ideas and situations in the various countries we represent.
SCC-Group.jpg (139784 bytes) After two days of very interesting and valuable training sessions we proudly received our SCC certificate in the pictures Schloss Schadau in Thun.
This was a great trip, time well invested. I thought I know everything about coffee, just to find out how little I knew. 

Special thanks to the Schaerer SCC team in putting together this great training seminar, well done...
