Brewing an excellent cup of coffee is the last stop in a sustainable supply chain, and we are here to help coffee professionals as well as home consumers prepare their best beverages.
Professional Coffee Training & Certification
Café Campesino is certified by the Specialty Coffee Association as a Premier Training Campus, offering professional-level classes for baristas, coffee shop owners and coffee industry professionals.
Sales and Education staffer Hannah Mercer is an Authorized Specialty Coffee Association Trainer whose SCA-approved classes can be an important stepping stone for baristas looking to achieve barista certifications or advance through the SCA’s education curriculum.
Successful students will acquire technical skills that will improve their drip coffee and espresso-based drink preparation, as well as enhance their general coffee knowledge. As they work through their classes, students will soon realize they are becoming “coffee experts” and as Hannah likes to say, “honoring the farmer” by brewing good coffee.
