Positive Reviews

Worth every penny
“Incredible course; brilliant tutors, great learning environment. Everything you could hope to learn in 4 days, and a thorough exam with material to refresh on after you qualify. Worth every penny if you want to get a practical qualification for service industry. Can’t recommend it enough!”


Open Opportunities
“Attended the 4 day Licence to Work course and cannot recommend it enough. Was a small group of 5 so training was highly personal and included lots of hands on practice. The instructor/teacher Tomasz was so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the four days, and was always happy to answer questions or repeat demonstrations. You will learn a lot about coffee, both in a theoretical and practical sense, both of which are enjoyable. Before attending I did think the price was steep, but barista work is a valuable skill to have, and you won't find better training elsewhere. Personally, it allowed me to alter my job role in work and open opportunities for me elsewhere. Worth the money, thank you Tomasz!”
