Neil - AST Trainer  

Neil opened Caffè & Co. in 2011 as one of the first Specialty coffee shops in the North West. Initially self taught, from 2012 Neil was delivering short and intense non accredited barista training courses covering the basics of espresso, milk texturing, and equipment.

Caffè & Co. became a member of the SCA (Speciality Coffee Association. Although at the time it was then known as the SCAE (Specialty Coffee Association of Europe), which subsequently merged with the U.S based SCAA.

Accreditation was becoming increasingly important. More and more students wanted to become certified. An internationally recognised certification system, it was perfect for people wanting to work in coffee shops as baristas and also students wishing to take a year out travelling so they could seek employment in a coffee shop whilst travelling.

SCA accreditation also gives the new coffee shop business owner considerable recognition. It says that you are serious about coffee and will be following certain principles and procedures for good specialty coffee.

In 2014 Neil began to study for the SCA Coffee Diploma, became an AST (Authorised SCA Trainer) in 2017 and subsequently was awarded the SCA Diploma in 2018. At the time of writing (May 2018), just over 1,000 SCA Diplomas had been awarded worldwide.

Emese is the Manager at Caffè & Co. Emese joined us in 2015 and now teaches our Latte Art / Coffee Art classes. Emese is very advanced with latte art and is currently progressing through her SCA Diploma modules.
