Consulting Programs

Coffee Shop Training Program — Including Multi-Unit Accounts

If possible, you'll start at our facilities, learning how to use equipment and the 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 the history of coffee, espresso production, hot and cold drink production and machine maintenance.

If you're within an hour of one of our locations, we'll provide on-site training for your employees. You will receive our Barista Training Guide (with customized instructions for your operation) as a permanent reference for current and future employees. If you need further training later, our staff is always glad to assist you.

Food Service
Cafés aren't the only eateries that deserve good coffee. Restaurants, hotels and bars should serve a cup that's on par with their food offerings. We can help you with your brewed coffee—making sure its fresh and consistent, and that you have the right equipment for your needs. If you want to add espresso to your menu, we'll erase the intimidation and help you serve drinks that will impress your customers.
