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.

The Passionate, knowledgeable instructors are helping with each individual student to learn all the concepts of the lessons. I attended the class with no knowledge about the coffee and coffee machine, but at the end of the training I felt like it was a great experience for me to be able to work on my own cafe and serve my customers with pride and confidence. I will greatly appreciate it thank you so much Mr Jamie Van Dam and Ms Seema. I Will recommend it to anyone who wants to learn how to make a coffee in a professional way. The knowledge of the coffee from the coffee plants, seeds, roasting, brewing…… to the CUP with beautiful arts on top.

thank you Mahboba! Congratulaions on the opening of your M&A CAFE at 1710 Avenue Rd, North York, Ontario

I definitely recommend this course to anyone who dreamed to be a business owner.

Best course to take for anyone who wants to their own business, not limited to coffee. The instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful. The customized and transparent information they provided is an eye opener. I said at the very beginning, the concept I learned from this course can be well applied to any business and even to daily life. You might find that coffee shop is not actually your thing at the end of the course, just like me, yet you will appreciate this even more! I definitely recommend this course to anyone who dreamed to be a business owner. It’s a life saver!

thank you !
