Coffee Shop Training

Everything happens at the Crimson Cup Innovation Lab. This is our space that we transformed to reflect all things evolving in the realm of coffee and tea.

Invest in the success of your coffee shop with Crimson Cup’s hands-on coffee shop training. Learn the art and science of great-tasting specialty coffee from our seasoned coffee professionals. They know the ins and outs of the specialty coffee industry and how to transfer their knowledge and skills to you and your staff. We will turn you and your staff into baristas!

Since 1991, Crimson Cup has helped hundreds of coffee shop owners in 30 states.  We encourage you to open your coffee shop, or breathe new life into your existing coffee shop, by taking advantage of our tips and experience following current industry trends.

A full schedule of coffee shop training is included in our Seven Steps to Coffee Startup Success program. Following this schedule will give you all the tools you need to open a coffee shop.

Over the years, we’ve found that ongoing training is key to long-term success. Re-visiting these training courses is perfect for those who need to refresh their skills or training new baristas to maintain high quality service and consistency.
