After a 10 year break from the Specialty Coffee industry, I knew starting my own coffee roasting company would require a new learning platform. My strategy for success depended upon finding a certified SCAA Lab with qualified instructors. Attending courses at Coffee Solutions in Hopedale, Ma. was one of the best investments I have made in my company. Anybody interested in upping their game – beginners, intermediates and experts- will most definitely benefit from the courses at Coffee Solutions.
My staff and I found the training provided by Coffee Solutions to be extremely valuable to our business model. In a fairly young industry (Specialty Coffee), where there are more armchair experts and opinions than you can shake a stick at, Coffee Solutions stands out as a beacon of truth, knowledge and science … not to mention the fact that we all had a blast! We’ll definitely be sending more of our staff to be trained and educated by Todd and his team!
Many times the training sessions I attend or even teach run short of time or attention. Todd at Coffee Solutions managed to teach coffee for an entire day, all while keeping me extremely interested and attentive.
