At Matthew Algie, we know coffee. Extracting the very best qualities from your coffee requires skill, knowledge and passion. Training Grounds’ community of coffee professionals provide expert training at our Speciality Coffee Association (SCA) accredited coffee training schools, or through a range of online tutorials and resources.
We are unable to run face-to-face courses at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t receive great barista training from Matthew Algie. Our all-new e-learning platform means you have access to comprehensive courses on your laptop, tablet or phone, at your own pace.
Our first course, Introduction to Coffee, is available now. There are 23 modules to get you started in coffee. Clear explanations, how-to-videos, interactive animations and quizzes make learning about coffee easier than ever.
And the best bit? It’s absolutely FREE when you sign up.
We have three training schools found in Glasgow, London and Dublin. Each has been awarded the prestigious SCA Premier Training Campus status and we are the first training provider to achieve SCA Campus sites in all 3 cities. We’re also the first operator in Europe to offer multi-site accreditation.
Achieving SCA Campus accreditation is a prestigious designation that requires compliance with the highest standards of educational excellence.
Face-to-face training is unavailable right now but check back for further updates.
If you’re looking for tips and tricks, or want to perfect your techniques, look no further than our online training resources.
We have a wide range of downloadable how-to guides and video tutorials to keep your baristas on their toes!
