COFFEE & TEA TRAINERS

PERSONALIZED COURSES, TRAINERS WITH VAST EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH YOU

We are constantly learning, which makes us move forward to the latest techniques guaranteeing the best coffee trainings available in the country and surroundings.

 

It is up to us, to look for professional trainers, willing to provide first-class service at all times, and this is just what we did. We hired and personally trained all barista trainers. Yearly we have the opportunity to work with students participating in National and Internacional Coffee Competitions. This is why we consider very important for all trainers and ourselves to know first hand what it means to Compete. Everyone working here, including founders have already participated in National Competitions, this makes us know exactly what judges are looking for. 

Below you will find detail information on everyone working at Academia Barista Pro. Our team of 4 is ready to begin your classes.
