Join the Italian Barista Certificate protocol!

Espresso Academy is a coffee training center founded in Florence, Italy, in 2007. 
Since then the school has grown in terms of popularity and trusteeship, arriving to count over 1000 students per year in the home school in Florence and thousands of online courses sold in three languages.

Espresso Academy websites and social networks reach, right now, over a million and a half of visits per year. 

Around the 50% of the students of Espresso Academy come from abroad.

Seeing how many students decide to face a long trip to come to Italy, and seeing how difficult (or even impossible due to Visa requests or costs) it is for many of them, we have decided to offer them the possibility to learn and certify their coffee knowledge directly in their country, but with the same standard of Espresso Academy. 

This is why we have created the Italian Barista Method protocol.


Italian Barista Method
How does it work?

Compared to other Coffee training methods, Italian Barista Method has its focus on the real needs of the Coffee operator

  • Speed

  • Self confidence

    • expertise

    • management skills.

      These are the keywords we have focused on to create the IBM protocol.


      Now Italian barista method by Espresso Academy is the training protocols used in many countries, by many EA partners.

      IBM focuses on the real needs of the coffee operator, barista or roaster. All the areas are based on an entirely practical training protocol, so much so that the theory is carried out before the course, with an online training system, and all the time in the classroom is dedicated to practice and improvement of the skills, until getting the "Coffee specialist"  gold diploma!
