Q: Do you accept international students?

A: Yes, but you must possess intermediate English listening and comprehension skills. We do offer a special ESL class to small groups of 6-8 students. To reserve your spot and for more details, please contact us

Q: Can I skip Barista Levels I and II and just take Barista Level III? 

A: This may put you in a disadvantaged position to other people in the class. For this reason, we recommend you take Barista Level I and Barista Level II in their entirety. Even experienced Baristas with a couple years of experience can find themselves lagging behind novices whose Baristas careers are just a few hours old. Because a novice has taken Level I and II. 

Q: Travelling into town, and Don't see a class time that works for your schedule? 

A: Contact us to see how we can assist you.

Q: Why is this a good investment of my time, effort and money?

A: You know the difference between a regular cup of coffee and a delicious coffee beverage skillfully prepared by an expert Barista.

Don’t ever settle for a second rate cup of coffee again.

Q: Do I need a coffee background to take the classes?

A: No, however, the Barista Training Classes should be taken in order: 

  1. Barista Level I then 
  2. Barista Level II and then  
  3. Barista Level III
