World Class Barista Training and Latte Art Techniques

Barista training classes are offered at our facilities in Holland, MI, or we will send our coffee school trainers to you. Either way, you will receive world-class training in professional barista techniques such as espresso preparation, milk steaming, creating latte art, customer services and more. With our "train the trainer" method, you will leave with the confidence of systems you will use for the life of your coffee business.

We rely on our reputation as our greatest marketing tool. To read of others' experiences at our barista training school, have them share in their own words their view of our barista course and tell you why they chose us over other coffee schools is our best way to advertise.
