Last Friday’s job report was one of the single most compelling statistics to hit the public right up to the very end of the presidential campaign. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy added 171,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate rose to 7.9%, up from 7.8% in September.

While both presidents’ campaigns have spent the week educating voters on how this new report supports each of their cases, Friday’s report must be taken in context. A single month’s report isn’t as sure-fire an indicator of prosperity as the presidential hopefuls may like it to be. The report that the unemployment rate is 7.8 percent means only that the Bureau of Labor Statistics is 90 percent sure the real rate lies between 7.6 percent and 8.0 percent. The reality that ought to be much more compelling is that since the start of 2012, employers have averaged 146,000 new hires a month.

So prosperity isn’t skyrocketing for America, but it’s been a slow, steady incline.

Because this San Diego-based Barista training school is the nation’s headquarters for launching small business and careers in the coffee industry, it is in many ways directly affected by these figures, and yet, –is also proving to be virtually impervious to them.

ILBA Coffee School has helped over 46% more students and entrepreneurs thrive in the coffee industry, just compared to last year alone. –An exponential improvement from the national average’s gain of a slim .1%. At a school that usually breaks for the holiday season, but had to ad an extra December class to keep up with demand, this growth is all too welcome for those looking for a glimmer of hope for their careers in a stagnant economy.

The vocational training though their coffee school puts students on the fast track to a return on their investment in the perpetually growing, proven recession-proof industry of gourmet coffee. The 3-Day package guides students through a robust, hands-on experience for cultivating basic barista skills. The 4-Day goes a step further, honing advanced techniques with top-standard brewing methods, espresso extraction, milk steaming, even latte art.

The 5-Day Intensive proves to be the most economic option in several ways; not only do students get the most practice and instruction for their dollar, but this unique package focuses on the operational, business side of attaining success in any coffee venture. Students are exposed to the no-nonsense practical’s and logistics of managing a coffee business, branding and marketing conceptualization, even navigating government bureaucracies. There is even customized private training and roasting workshops at their 10,000 square foot roasting facility. Frankly put, no other school does this. ILBA coffee school is the only one with a course offering diversified enough to equip students to weather an ever-changing economy.

Nevertheless, the greatest catalyst bringing students of Ivy League Barista Academy is the turn-key infrastructure of coffee-based services in which ILBA Coffee School is just the first step. This infrastructure, aptly named Coffee Shop Experts, offers everything from café design and construction to wholesale fair trade coffee. So whether the student is a seasoned entrepreneur recognizing the opportunity of a burgeoning industry in a bleak economy, or a hopeful start-up new to the coffee scene, ILBA coffee school has become a popular first step, and viable solution to an otherwise slow-moving employment rate.
