Training & Support

Lincoln & York offers a range of bespoke solutions to train and support customers in heightening their coffee knowledge and skills. From barista training at our facility or yours, to coffee tasting workshops and presentations, our team are well-equipped to support you.

As well as customised training, we are a registered City & Guilds barista training centre, running a monthly City & Guilds Level 2 Barista Skills course at the roasteries. The two day course is open to all and will teach you everything you need to be a brilliant barista.

Through a mix of both practical and classroom-based learning with our coffee tasting and buying team, you will learn…

How to craft the perfect coffee

With one-on-one mentoring from our experts and a lot of practice, by the end of the two days you will be able to brew the perfect espresso, cappuccino, latte, filter coffee, tea, hot chocolate and smoothie.

The story behind the bean

Learn about the origins of the coffee beans, the tea leaf and the cocoa bean – how and where they are grown, how they are processed and the journey they go on to get to our cup.
