Business is much more complicated then in past decades. You are now competing against people and large coffee-chain businesses that have sophisticated ways of collecting and analyzing data to compete against you.

We are here to teach you to manage your risk and increase your chances for success by teaching you the science of business versus relying on your feelings and gut instincts.

We understand the challenges that you face in this pandemic economy. Understandably, you may be feeling apprehension with your coffee shop project.

The harsh reality is, just like what is happening on our financial markets today, from this pandemic there will emerge some opportunities.

    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!

    I would highly recommend

    I took the opening a coffee shop + barista level 3 course here, and it was an absolute pleasure. I came in with no knowledge on how to make a cup of coffee, and after a week, i was able to create my own amazing cappuccinos with not so bad art on them. The courses are well structured and have a comfortable pace for all attendees to learn from. If you are looking to get into the coffee industry, whether as a business owner or a barista, I would highly recommend checking them out!

    Thanks Khalid for this review! was great to have you in the 4 day business course in Calgary.

    I learned so much and the after support is excellent!

    I attended the Coffee Business and Barista Training Bundle and it was excellent. The instructors are experts in the coffee industry with a lot of knowledge, skills and experience. They delivered the material in a professional, relaxed and clear manner that made it easy to learn in both the on-line and lab. The after support in setting up a home system was excellent and should I choose to pursue a coffee business I know that as an alumni I will get great help! Whether you are exploring the idea of a coffee business, setting up, or already running one this is a fantastic resource to help you be successful. And if coffee is just a personal interest, this training is a great place to delve deep into your hobby.

    Thank you Isleta! We really enjoyed the course with you in it as well and look forward to hearing more about your coffee business adventure!
