Barista Training Program

In response to the growing demands of the specialty coffee industry, the TCFB Barista Training Program guides interested students through the basic operations of a coffee shop/restaurant, teaching the skills required to be a barista. Industry professionals and our Culinary Academy staff offer classroom and hands-on training not only in coffee brewing, but also in customer service, counter operations, and food safety. Additionally, participants will be assisted with producing a resume and connected with job placement resources. This program is available to anyone over the age of 16.
