Are we qualified to provide you with barista training ?

We have been in the coffee business since 1982.

We started as a family company providing filter coffee to local businesses and have grown organically into a company (still family owned and operated) who provide a professional coffee systems service to hotels, restaurants, and catering companies throughout the UK.

We have a warehouse full of coffee related products that we provide. We supply, install and service professional espresso machines and bean-to-cup machines (our own engineers) and we even have our Artisan Coffee Van to serve coffee at functions and events.

We are members of the Speciality Coffee Association of Europe and are a City & Guilds accredited Barista Training School.

Please contact us if you require any testimonials from previous delegates.
