The American Barista & Coffee School [ABC’s] is the first and only professional school in the U.S. devoted to domestic and international specialty coffee business education and hands-on barista training. No other coffee school can match the scope of ABC’s educational and retail success-building curriculum.
If you’re looking to some serious study of coffee making, try ABC, costs $2,225 for one student (4 day course) or $1,800 for three days. Yes it’s expensive, but worth a every penny you spend on your training.
The ABC school is situated in Portland, which is home to hundreds of specialty coffee operations and some of the best roasteries in the U.S. While in Portland, ABC’s students visit many of these innovative coffee shops and can see how other independents are able to succeed in a highly competitive market.
