Coffee Trainings for Coffee Shops already established outside of El Salvador

Success in a global business is affected and we are not only talking about Covid, those entrepreneurs who have not managed to develop strategies to value coffee and become successful within that topic, will suffer the most during this time.

We have helped thousands of companies develop their menu, their staff and improve at the operational level within the already established business. You will go on to serve a delicious and complete menu of coffee-based drinks that your client will appreciate.

We understand that competition is advancing by leaps and bounds and our duty is to stay one step ahead of them at all time. For this reason, we offer you a complete coffee training for all staff, where they are taught world-renowned techniques and we get rid of mal practices. They are taught techniques of consistency, how to care for professional equipment, and how to dazzle with latte art.

The purpose of our coffee trainings for established businesses, is to provide the opportunity for owners to develop operational strategies, where their entire staff achieves the desired level of learning, preparing efficient and delicious drinks at all times.

During these trainings a full menu of drinks is shared with them with step by step instructions, drinks you can adopt to your business immediately.


Providing an exceptional quality service and beverages that work towards differentiation, promotes the image of a brand locally.

You can quote training services for full staff from 7 days in your country minimum, where we work step by step to train them and leverage them to the level you need to succeed.

Coffee Training for Competition Outside of El Salvador

We have come to the conclusion that the reason we competed from the beginning was to see and compare our level with the best in El Salvador.


Even so, the learning that this first experience left us was not to compare ourselves, it was to improve to reach further and it gave us the opportunity to see what we needed to improve to be better. This hunger for knowledge led us to want to dive right in and look for all kinds of technology to improve.


Despite the fact that Covid postponed our plans to compete throughout 2020 and possibly throughout 2021, year after year we have managed to train winning students. It is something that motivates us to continue, the desire to train for competition both nationally and internationally, is fed by our students exceeding any expectation. Such is the case of our last training session with the Two time National Champion of Honduras, Carlos Guerra, owner of Café San Rafael. ( Learn more about him here )

Coffee Competitions are fun, it is likely that at any time in your life you have participated in one. The truth is that a competition is much more fun if it leads to professional growth, beyond rank. Today, coffee competitions are held in more than 150 countries around the world. There are Coffee Competitions pertaining cupping, Barista, Brewing, and Latte Art.

If you are willing to Compete at the National or International level in World Coffee Events, consider our trainings to learn what is required of you in competition. After 12 years of experience, our trainings include everything you need to know to represent your business or country in the best way.

These trainings are carried out only with Both Founders of Academia Barista Pro. We recommend that you travel to El Salvador to receive them.
