CBA's core of teaching is based on what you need to know and not what most think you should know, stripping off the fat and focusing on the meat of the subject. I have so far attended their Barista Level 1 and Tasting courses and just recently the Coffee Business course.
As a beginner I am keen to build my knowledge of the industry to support the building of my route map in starting a hobby based coffee business in the future. Les, Jamie and the team provide a very student focused, consumer influence driven syllabus. But where they differ from most is their post education devotion to their students and passion to educate the community in 'quality, not quantity'.
If you're a beginner like me and you want to broaden your coffee knowledge, understand why you like some coffee and not others or how you can turn your love of Joe into a business, then this is your place to go. The simple, easy approach and process to espresso preparation meant I was pouring the attached lattes on Day 1!
Thanks guys, look forward to coming back soon.
