Do you wish your team would care a little more about the customer's enjoyment of their cappuccino or latte?

The quality and consistency of the coffee served in your cafe, restaurant or bar can be greatly enhanced by the skills of your staff.

Cafeology can guarantee to be able to put the passion back into coffee making for your team. Each of our courses is individually tailored to meet your needs. A great deal of care and attention has gone into growing, picking, roasting and packing our coffee and this can be lost in a few short moments. However, making coffee with the right training means this skill can be perfected to produce the optimum drink and make sure that the customer enjoys the coffee at its best.

Cafeology provide full barista training courses based at our SCA accredited training facility in Sheffield, or if you prefer we are able to train on your site. Alternatively we host special tours of our roasting facility and can offer on site training by prior arrangement.

Knowledge is Power

We believe in educating our customers as much as possible on the roasting process which is why we encourage visits to our roastery in Sheffield. This gives the opportunity to show the full roasting process and allows access for our customers to understand the complexity and development of the bean.

We also host cupping sessions which are run by our Head of Coffee, Steve Hampshire. This allows you to try coffees from all over the world and give a greater insight into the unique flavour and characteristics each origin provides.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss how we can assist your business in maximising your knowledge whilst providing expert advice on your coffee service.
