If you're looking for a place to learn about coffee, this is definitely Calgary's best bet. They are very professional, the course is organized, and it is not difficult for a zero foundation. Just remember, when you get coffee knowledge, remember to review. As for latte art, be sure to practice a lot.

I highly recommend this course

I took the coffee barista bundle course in April and couldn’t be happier I did that. The course includes a section on how to open your own coffee shop and the information shared definitely raised awareness on how to avoid the common mistakes that usually lead to failure. I highly recommend this course to all of those who would like to learn about high quality coffee shops and high quality coffee making.

thank you Erika, was good to meet you!
