Education is at the core of everything we do. Our role in the specialty coffee industry allows us to be students and teachers in every facet of the chain of coffee from the producer level to the barista level. We share education because we believe that paying forward experiences and lessons is the key to our industry progressing as a whole. 

Our staff are extremely involved in volunteering with the SCA, BGA, and Roasters Guild. Our staff have held various executive level positions within each organization over the years, and we have contributed in developing much of the core curriculum these organizations currently use in their programs. We also have launched the MPLS Coffee Mill, which is our collaborative SCA accredited training center in Minneapolis where we host many classes and sessions throughout the year. Please stop by to see when our next session is.

This education page platform is meant to freely share with you our expertise as a team of coffee professionals with collective experiences in nearly every aspect in the chain of coffee. Enjoy!
