More and more people are lacking the important barista skills that are essential to success in the market.
You can offer all the trendy new fads, and the latest fair trade, green, eco-friendly and all around good to the planet coffee but if your barista skills are not up to scratch then you'll be shooting yourself in the foot every time you hand over a barely there latte or overpowering mocha.
We run a full barista program here at Green Farm Coffee, to ensure that everyone understands not only the importance of good barista skills but also where coffee comes from and the roasting process.
Through our time of being a base for barista training in Norwich, we have discovered also that even well-established businesses need a refresh and hone in on their skills.
Fully trained and confident baristas ensure the smooth running of the establishment and can transform customers visit from an everyday one to something special.
Every cup of coffee is important, it's what we stand by. Having your staff take this feeling on board too and really put their soul into coffee.

You may be completely underutilizing your staffs' skills, and improving the quality of your drinks will ensure your ingredients work a lot harder too towards success.
Long queues with well-trained baristas will not phase them, as they will have the confidence behind them to whizz through each drink and still produce the best quality.
Training on the traditional espresso machine staff use daily can easily be done, or we invite you into our HQ where you can also see the roasting process. Adding another level of knowledge to your skills.
Our training includes everything from coffee production, espresso styles, milk texturing, latte art and troubleshooting.
