The Barista Academy was established in 2001 with main campuses in Toronto, Vancouver and satellite campuses wherever specialty coffee competitions were being held in Canada that year (Calgary, Montreal, Quebec, etc,).
In May of 2019 we officially opened a permanent campus in Calgary bringing our extensive background and many years of providing services and teaching to baristas and coffee shop owners to the beautiful province of Alberta.
Over the years we have trained thousands of new cafe owners, managers, baristas and coffee roaster entrepreneurs through our hands-on training courses and in-house consulting. Our Teachers are expert trainers and professional baristas with a combined 35 years experience teaching.
We offer Beginner, Advanced and Expert Barista training classes with how to open, manage and operate a Cafe Courses. Check here for details.
