Our barista training program equips trainees with the foundational skills needed to work in the specialty coffee industry. Skills include preparing and serving pour overs, Aeropresses, and espresso-based beverages. We also explore customer service, American workplace culture, and the history and supply chain of coffee. 

The participation requirements are fairly simple. You must be (1) a refugee, asylum seeker (with a work permit), or Special Immigrant Visa holder; (2) 18 years of age or older; and (3) be interested and available to work in the coffee industry upon completion of the program.
