Building on the success of its bespoke Barista Academy courses, BaxterStorey has launched a dedicated training centre for its coffee-loving trainees. Since its inception in 2009, the academy has trained over 300 employees a year on average in the art of coffee service. And now a new devoted training space has been created at the BaxterStorey London office to meet increasing demand.
The centre includes eight functioning stations for teaching, a range of hand-built espresso machines, brewing equipment and a reverse osmosis water filtration system. The BaxterStorey barista training team are all Speciality Coffee Association-qualified trainers who deliver fully certificated training to teams.
Noel Mahony, co-chief executive of BaxterStorey, said: “BaxterStorey’s passion for coffee and training has not only spearheaded great quality coffee offers to clients, but has also placed our baristas in the highest tier of coffee specialists within the UK. Our mission is that everyone in our business that touches coffee service will have undertaken training with the academy team.”
The new training centre joins BaxterStorey’s already award-winning learning and development initiatives, including the Chef Academy and the recently launched Service Academy.
