The witness of Renato Tonelli, an American trainee with Italian family roots who knew ZERO about working as a Barista, and needed to learn all the basics before starting a new career in this field. He completed the Coffee & Latte Art course of Barista PRO, the Coffee Academy:

Hi everybody! My name is Renato Tonelli and I just finished my Coffee & Latte Art course at Barista PRO. I highly recommend the course! I learned a lot of things  through this pathway. The trainers are very good, work is very intense. Even though it was difficult at first, you go through a lot of tough excercises, but they’re able to make it fun and very enjoyable. I got to work with real Espresso coffee machines, so having a practical training really prepared me  to go into the real world and find work, and help me develop and work as a professional. And… Yeah, it was great! I highly recommend it! My italian teachers helped me  explaining everything in English, so they were able to offer  this advantage, this quality  for my teaching. I recommend it!




Barista Training Course

Team Made in Italy

Barista PRO, the Coffee Academy has a team of truly Italian experts in the coffee service.

Italians may be infamous for a lot of reasons, but for sure making a great coffee or cappuccino is not one of those.

English Speaking

Our barista training courses are provided in English (and not in German), but if you’re reading this page we’re sure it won’t be a problem.

This may surprise you, but our Italian Trainers are all very good at speaking English.

Barista PRO courses are 90% practical, but great communication for us is essential to do our job best.

Teachers more than Baristas

Our trainers not only are professional baristas with a huge experience but also extremely well-prepared teachers.

We strongly believe that being just good at something doesn’t mean you can also teach it to someone else, especially if the other person knows nothing of what you’re talking about.

That’s why our Trainers spend part of their everyday life studying how to deliver their precious knowledge to Barista PRO international students.

Practical Barista Training

To become a professional barista you will need to know the basics of the coffee plants and beans, why you have to use a certain kind of cup, and a few principles of chemistry, but mostly you’ll have to learn how to serve coffee and other daily beverages in a perfect way.

That’s why our Barista Training is 90% practical, and it will be YOU making coffees, foaming the milk, and managing the coffee machine ALL THE TIME during the course.

BIG Numbers

2 years ago 85,6% of our students found a job as baristas within 3 months by the end of our professional Barista Training.

In the last year, this amazing percentage grew up to 94,11%.

These numbers make us proud even more than our International Certification, considering that we’re talking about hundreds of people who found a job with our help.

International Certificate

Barista PRO, the Coffee Academy has an International Certification for projecting and providing barista training courses all over the world.

If you ever heard of an ISO9001 Certification, then you should know how hard it is to get one, and how high our teaching standards must be.

You cannot just buy such a certification. On the contrary, we must prove every year the quality of every single aspect of our work.
