Since 2001, The Canadian Barista Academy

is an open source barista training and coffee business school. We simply want to improve coffee quality in Canada, one cup at a time, with a commitment to your success and growing the Artisan Coffee movement in Canada.

The Canadian Barista Academy

actively shares knowledge and skills through our coffee classes and in-cafe consulting. 

We have been learning, adapting and developing for almost 2 decades now and have found the most efficient and effective ways of Opening an Independent Specialty Cafe, training its Management and teaching the fundamental Barista skills needed to operate at a high level. 

Our motivation in teaching is simple and transparent - we do not want to sell you anything (kickbacks) nor will we one day compete against your coffee business. Our sole objective is to educate!

If you’re interested in learning from us, please get in touch, or check out our coffee courses in Vancouver,  Calgary  and  Toronto.
