Deliver Coffee Excellence for Your Business

As the leading coffee solution provider in Ireland, not only can Vero Coffee work with our customers to create tailored coffee experiences to fit their business, exceed commercial expectations and satisfy consumer tastes, we can help you stay on-trend and ahead of the competition.

Our Barista Coffee Training delivers on all key aspects of a successful coffee offer, to ensure your staff have all the tools to serve exceptional and consistent coffee, cup after cup.

We follow the industry highest standard which is set out by the Specialty Coffee Association of Europe (SCAE), and our coffee training is conducted by our own SCAE certified barista trainer.

As Lavazza’s official distributor in Ireland, we also work very closely with Lavazza UK’s training headquarter on developing more specific coffee training, focusing on the various blends of Lavazza espresso beans. This way you can have very in-depth knowledge of the coffee you are serving, get the best brewing ratio and extract the best espresso for the particular blend of beans you are using.

Each Coffee Training Course is uniquely tailored for the individual customer’s requirement. This will depend on the industry you are in, the type of equipment you have, and the level of your staff’s existing coffee knowledge and skills. We understand our training course needs to be practical and on-trend, that’s why our training course is constantly evolving too, making sure that we can share the latest technology and coffee trends with our customer.

You Choose Where

There are two types of coffee training we carry out for our coffee customers:

  • On-Site Training: Our trainer will travel to your premises and conduct the training with your employee. We prefer to keep the training course small, maximum of 5 trainees each session, so we can make the most out of the session and each trainee can receive some hands-on practice as well.
  • Visit our Purposely Built Training Rooms: You and your team can also avail of our in-house Vero Training Room session. For more on Barista Courses in Dublin, read more below.
