The teacher was really nice and explained everything and helped us through the single steps. He had a lot of knowledge and loves to share it with his students. In the class, you learn everything about the basic steps and a bit of knowledge as well. It was really good and I thought I knew a bit about coffee, but I was wrong. Luckily I decided to take this class! Would do it every time again and I will take an advanced class when possible

Andy is super nice and friendly, offering not only kind explanations of coffee’s history and changes of all different styles but also dinner! I would definitely love to take another course of his. I had a bunch of questions and he answered really nicely until the end. Thank you for being such a nice teacher, mentor, trainer for me.
