This was a hands-on, apprentice type experience, with a very real world training environment. Well planned and diverse experience to offer to trainees in one place. Experiment, document, taste, and replicate! - The best lessons learned since I've been in the coffee business. Klatch has a fabulous and dedicated focus team. They were very supportive and I felt as I was part of the team. I highly encourage this training to anyone who is in the coffee business.
We've all heard the saying "Those who can't do, teach", however that is simply not the case of Mike. Not only does he have multiple success in business (retail, wholesale & training), but he also has a tremendous amount of knowledge, experience, most importantly & willingness to share/teach. IAH I would rather you not use this as I would like to keep Mike my personal secret weapon/coffee guru.
Mike is the greatest instructor showing you how to cup and roast coffee.
I highly recommend learning how to roast coffee from Mike and the Barista training from Heather. There is a reason why they have won so many awards.
