Speciality Coffee Association of Europe (SCAE) is the world's leading professional organization promoting excellence in quality coffee, drawing together professionals from all aspects of the coffee industry. Central to SCAE's purpose is to improve coffee standards through furthering knowledge and education. With this aim the Coffee Diploma System (CDS) was created.


Coffee is a huge industry, offering many and varied career opportunities. The Coffee Diploma System allows people to choose the educational path that most suits their needs.
Six different modules exist in different disciplines, each with three levels of qualification: Foundation, Intermediate and Professional (apart from Introduction to Coffee which is just one level).

It's your choice on the modules you take to get you to 100 points.
