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.
We have recently noticed a surge of interest in Barista Training Courses Cardiff and Barista Training Courses Manchester. This follows on nicely from recent research we carried out at a trade show, which identified Cardiff and Manchester as two of the top "up and coming" regions for a growing interest in good coffee, in addition to Sheffield and Nottingham.
We already provide barista training to both new start-ups and existing coffee businesses from around the UK, as far afield as Glasgow, London, Bristol, Devon and recently the Isle of Wight !
