Our Calgary location operates out of ECM Coffee Machines training facility. And, from time to time we will operate courses, such as Coffee Roasting, business and barista classes from satellite campuses in Alberta and surrounding provinces and territories. We can also offer in-cafe and roastery trainings upon request.
To reserve your spot in the classroom, registration can be completed online through the website only (please do not call ECM for bookings)

Food for Class:
You don't really need to have your daily coffee before class unless you can't function without it as you will be given ample opportunity to make and drink many coffees during the classes. We also recommend that you consider bringing some snacks, drinks, whatever would make you most comfortable. Here is a potential list of some nearby Restaurants in case you are looking for lunch ideas while attending our course. Please note, we are not endorsing these restaurants, nor are we guaranteeing they will be open. When it comes to lunch, we recommend that you bring a brown bag lunch and not go out for lunch so that you don't need to leave the classroom. Often times students will lose time in the classroom because that restaurant they went to was busy.
