Our 3,000 square foot coffee training space in Charlotte, North Carolina includes spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped cupping, roasting, brewing, and barista training labs.

For the safety of students and staff, we have structured several aspects of our in-person sessions to minimize COVID-19 risk. This includes smaller class sizes to allow social distancing, thorough cleaning, ventilation, and sanitizing of training spaces and equipment before, during, and after each class, providing individual accessories sets for each student's use, requiring all attendees wear a face covering or mask properly for the duration of class, and symptoms screening before admission.

We are committed to creating a welcoming learning environment for all. That's why all attendees must read and adhere to our code of conduct while in the Skills Campus.
