The Italian coffee experiences of Espresso Academy for groups and coffee geeks!

The world and the culture of coffee do not live only on professional and high-level courses, coffee, as well as wine, cheese and other products can also be the subject of a fascinating, informative and even fun experience.

This is not said by us, but by the many students who visited us for our Italian coffee experiences as part of corporate groups (Porsche, Mont blanc, Tchibo ...) Universities from all over the world (Yale, Cambridge, the University of Zurich, the University of Florida, Kent University and many others) from hotellerie schools or simply as private individuals, passionate about Italy, Italian style and coffee, who come to Espresso Academy from all over the world.

How the Espresso Academy coffee experiences work

Espresso Academy Italian coffee experiences are super modular and can be tailor-made for every need and size of the group.

The duration generally ranges from one to three hours (but in the pandemic we have even organized small half-hour coffee breaks for corporate conventions on Zoom). Even if the Italian espresso coffee experience of the "making cappuccino as Italians" Programs can also be built together with those who ask us for experiences, following their interests and passions.

In general we can say that typical moments of these experiences are:

  • What is coffee? A virtual visit to a coffee plantation.
  • A “real” visit to a coffee roaster, to its specialty and industrial department
  • An equally real visit to the history of espresso machines, with real and (in some cases) functioning vintage machines
  • Guided tastings of various coffees, from all over the world!
  • How to make Italian espresso and cappuccino with latte art with super trainers Robert Brink and Simone Celli
  • … And how can we not let the participants prepare their cappuccino “with the heart” with the guidance of our trainers?
