Knowledge, Skills and Navigating through the Specialty Coffee Industry

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/

I can guarantee that if you take this course than you will come away from it knowing much more about coffee than you thought possible, and much more about business, than just the coffee business!  Ken Scurrah Alberta, Canada Read Ken's Review on Google
