ILBA Coffee School is guiding their students to success in one of the most actively traded commodities in the world; more than $100 billion worldwide. According to Global Exchange, “Coffee is the world's second most valuable traded commodity with twelve billion pounds of coffee consumed annually and the United States alone having over 130 million coffee drinkers.”
No other barista training or coffee school comes close to how much Ivy League Barista Academy offers. Their coffee school will not only teach their students how to do latte art, like other schools, rather will guide them on how to run their own business efficiently and effectively. Their secret? The personable, well rounded and experienced coffee training staff. They're coming to each barista student with experience in opening over 500 coffee businesses for large franchises as well as individual owners, worldwide.
ILBA Coffee School’s expertise lies in their diverse knowledge of the coffee industry. This includes but is not limited to, cafe design and build-out, supplies and products, barista training and managing, and successfully running and maintaining a coffee business. With over 50 years of combined experience, their perspective will cultivate their barista students into a discerning, well balanced coffee professional that’s a step ahead of the rest. All of their highly practical coffee classes are conducted at their 10,000 square foot facility in San Diego, California, where students are trained on the very same equipment they’ll have in their own café.
The most effective and popular class option is the five day barista training class. This class teaches the fundamentals of managing, marketing, operating and successfully growing a coffee business while expounding on proper barista techniques. It is the most elite and rewarding class for their barista students due to its focus on each of the targeted questions individual student has, to help establish a more personal consulting environment.
If the five day class is not what the barista is looking for, then ILBA Coffee School offers a three or four day coffee training class option. The four day coffee training course focuses on the fundamentals of advanced barista training techniques while the three day coffee training course focuses on introductory drink preparation techniques. The students at ILBA Coffee School will cover a variety of disciplines, all hands-on, in drink preparation, latte art, espresso extraction and milk texturing.
After the students have attended one of the class options, they will have the luxury of requesting a private training day if they feel they need just a little more hands-on experience. The future coffee business owners will work one-on-one with an experienced consultant developing their drink menu, personalizing drink recipes, and developing business management strategies. This day is extremely valuable whether they are a first time business owner or an existing cafe owner looking to develop new tastes and improve current business practices.
The final class option ILBA Coffee School offers is for those looking to roast coffee or do home roasting. Their two day Roasting Workshop is hands-on, combining the art and science of roasting, focusing on coffee profiles, moisture content testing, finding defects, and much more.
Each of ILBA Coffee School’s intensive hands-on courses exposes their students to the necessities and techniques of managing a coffee business, while training them how to navigate through those pesky yet crucial government bureaucracies. In addition to the five day coffee training class, a business plan package or a lease negotiation package will be given at no additional cost, to help further their process of opening a coffee business.
Since the consultants of ILBA Coffee School own successful coffee businesses, they understand the importance behind branding and marketing. This can make or break the success of a coffee business. They will teach what methods of marketing have personally worked and which ones do not.
Every one of the five trainers has experience in, and has mastered every aspect of, the coffee industry. No other coffee school offers this type of coffee training; from one barista to another. Students at this coffee school will be guided through a curriculum that teaches them all stages of opening a coffee business starting with city guidelines and branding, and ending with the use of coffee equipment and supplying their café with an opening inventory of fresh roasted coffee.
Providing sample budgeting documents, project time lines, pro forma’s, letters of intent, and a multitude of excel documents as references, will leave the students stress free during the most crucial time of opening their own coffee business.
Students will leave their facility equipped to take on every aspect of a growing and ever-changing industry. Learning from the trainers past mistakes will allow the students to make all of the right moves, the first time. When they leave ILBA Coffee School they will have the knowledge of how to open a coffee business, the confidence in managing and obtaining the skills and connections to successfully running their own coffee business.
