Hello and welcome to our new Cambridge Coffee Academy blog!
We aim to use this space to bring you frequent and engaging articles on what we are getting up to here at the academy: either concerning our courses or simply exciting coffee news that we wish to share with a wider audience.
Firstly, we are very happy to announce that our academy has reopened for business and all our courses are back up and running again. It has been fantastic to see so many people eager and happy to book courses with us and we cannot emphasise enough how much we appreciate the support!
As with many other small independent businesses, we have been greatly impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19 and were forced to close at the end of March. We have since been faced with the difficult decision on when to reopen for business and although we were eager to get back into the training room, we felt it would be irresponsible to reopen under such uncertain circumstances.
We decided that we wanted to wait to reopen until we were 100% sure that we could safely and comfortably run our courses to the same high standards while ensuring the safety of every customer and our staff. As current precautions, we require that face-masks be worn by our trainer and those attending the courses and hands must be sanitised upon entry. We are also making sure to thoroughly clean all equipment and surfaces between each course to keep our training room as clean and sanitised as possible.
In addition to this, our courses are currently limited to 4 people per course to maintain safe social distancing to guarantee that everyone receives enough attention and hands-on practice. For bespoke bookings regarding larger groups of people, we aim to work with you to ensure that all necessary precautions are taken with the safety of each individual attending as our upmost priority.
We offer courses for a wide range of abilities and experience, from those who wish to learn the basics to pursue a career in the coffee industry or current baristas who want to further their existing skills.
We welcome people of all abilities to our course and so no need
to worry if you have never touched a coffee machine before! We are happy to tailor our courses to your ability (although our advanced courses require some existing understanding of the topic) as we want you to get the most out of the course as you possibly can.
If you have any questions concerning course information or the safety precautions that we are taking concerning COVID-19, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to help.
Thank you for reading and stay safe!
