" I was in Vancouver over the Canada day long weekend. Attending the 4 days of barista classes offered by this school. I've never attended courses and had an instructor with such a vast knowledge and experiences to share. I am extremely greatful too have met, learned and gleaned any information from Les. You know almost instantly what his level of knowledge is. I whole heartedly recommend this course and experience to anyone wanting to broaden their knowledge of coffee and business. Thank you.

Barren Ground Coffee, Yellowknife, NT

I attended the four day barista and coffee shop course this last weekend. The depth of knowledge of the instructors is outstanding. As a coffee roaster/owner I appreciated the candid information delivered in a very straightforward manner. I have taken a course with the SCA as well and it was also very good, but I found this course far superior in it's delivery. I have left this course with more tools to evaluate and improve my roasting abilities. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is in the industry.

"In whole, the class was very informative and practical. If opening a cafe, I would consider this a must-do. The business aspect and theory in deciding how to position a new cafe would be instrumental. Of course, Les tailored the class to what would benefit us the most, which was most appreciated."

Knowledge, Skills and Navigating through the Specialty Coffee Industry

We really enjoyed our workshop/training with Les and Mario; it filled gaps in our knowledge and skills and also helped us to start really learning how to taste coffee. We also found it gave us confidence and a base knowledge to navigate our way through all the information out there in the coffee industry.  JoJo McGlade https://www.coffeefoodandtravel.com/
