Coffee Trivia

Up until the 1870’s most coffee was roasted at home in a frying pan over a charcoal fire. It wasn’t until recent times that batch roasting became popular.

More than 20 million people worldwide work in the coffee industry. 

A coffee tree lives for between 60 and 70 years.

Drinking a single cup of coffee that has been brewing for 20 minutes provides the body with 300 phytochemicals which act as antioxidants and stay in the body for up to a month.

Training and Consulting

Our Coffee Shop Training Program:

If possible you'll start at our facilities, learning equipment use and operations that will ensure you and your staff can run a working coffee bar before you open for business. You'll also get education on coffee history, espresso production, hot and cold drink assembly and machine maintenance.

And we don’t stop there.  If you're within an hour of one of our locations we'll come to your location to provide on-site training for your employees.  You will receive our Barista Training Guide (with customized instructions for your operation, if needed) as a permanent reference for current and future employees.  If you need further training later, our staff is always glad to assist you as best we can.
