About Us

“One ounce of practice is worth a thousand pounds of theory.”

“Practice what you preach”

We are a bunch of coffee geeks who believe in the above sayings and is what drives us and we are proud to be India’s first SCA Premier campus that provides trainings to all the stake holders of the coffee industry i.e. Planters – Roasters – Baristas – Café Owners – Home Baristas.

We practice what we preach, we understand the realities and challenges of owning a coffee farm, running a coffee café, operating a commercial roastery and brewing coffee at home for traditional South Indian coffee drinking parents as we have done it all successfully and own it all.

The synergy between our education, consultancy and research activities is the source of Speciality Coffee Academy of India’s [SCAI] unique value generation, innovation, problem solving and passion.

SCAI creates value by working across all verticals of the coffee industry primarily by bridging scientific methodology with business practices that are global but also localizing the trainings and emphasising about “INDIAN BUSINESS PRACTICES”.

Generally we establish collaboration and friendship between different cultures whether that be bridging small businesses and academics, science and humanities, technical business aspects with existential purpose, beginner's mind with expert mind or different geographical and cultural regions in the world.

We look at our students as partners and not just students and personalize trainings and provide personalized advice to ensure success as a coffee professional or as a coffee entrepreneur.

We welcome you to a world of amazing coffees and education !! #stopbadcoffee
