The coffee consulting projects we are following in this period.

 

At the moment our trainers at Espresso Academy are mainly working on two big projects as consultants:

  • We are giving technical advice to a company in Saudi Arabia opening a chain of caffetterie with a special interest in the quality of their product, we’ve been working on creating a fresh concept where coffee is the main actor and efficiency behind the counter is the key to good service. Looking for the ergonomic design of the workspace and finding the adequate equipment to get the best out of each type of coffee preparation!
  • In Egypt we are giving consultancy to a new capsules company that’s trying to bring the single origin experience to the regular capsule drinker, this means in the last days we’ve been tasting, tasting and tasting!! Our work, in this case, starts from the selection of green beans and finding an appropriate roast profile for each one to make sure the machine will be able to extract all those great aromas.
    Once we’ve found our possible coffees it’s time to chose how to approach the public and introduce the concept of specialty coffee to our future coffee passionate.
  • In Germany we are following a Coffee Shop chain with more than twenty high sellings shops, training all the Barista to increase the quality and the consistency of all the coffee drinks served in the shops and trying to improve the efficency of their workflow behind the bar. And they are looking to introduce basic latte art patterns (Heart, Rosetta…) in their milk based drinks.
  • Our trainers have taken a trip to Nepal for a company called One House Solution to train their barista trainers and roasters to improve the quality of their work. Together with the owners and the roasters they’ve worked on developing different roast profiles with their coffee to understand the impact on the flavor of the final product. Our aim was to give the local roasters the skills they need to adapt their profile to satisfy their customers and to take full advantage of their Nepali green coffee.
