You know what’s the only thing worse than stale coffee? A stale coffee business class. Don’t settle for less than one of the best coffee schools.
There are a growing number of options that offer coffee business training. How do you know which one is right for you? If you’re making an investment in your coffee business education, you want to look for the best curriculum available. We can help you narrow it down.
These days, it’s tempting to pay attention to what’s trending. A memorable scene at the Oscars, the latest TikTok audio, and last night’s sports game churn up clicks and engagement. But trending isn’t built to last. Small businesses who find success–the kind that endures–are those who innovate.
Coffee shop innovation is an important value at Texas Coffee School. In fact, our business was built on innovation! When we began in 2010, we were teaching classes in students’ houses when coffee education was a fairly new concept.
A few coffee schools can teach you brewing basics, but only the best coffee schools can teach you how to start a successful business. Opening a business isn’t easy: 20% of small businesses fail within the first year. If you’re in the coffee industry for the long haul, how can you increase your coffee shop’s chances of success?
Anything worth doing is worth doing right. That’s why our coffee education courses are designed to help students develop a solid foundation for opening a coffee shop.
With temperatures rising and people stepping out for coffee post-pandemic, cold brew continues to prevail as a favored coffee shop menu item. Coffee shop owners, managers, and baristas attest to the popularity of the smooth chilled beverage, especially among millennials. We like it black, sweetened, bottled, and even infused with nitrogen.
Making commercial cold brew is typically a slow process. Ground coffee is steeped in cold water for at least 12 hours before leaving you with the familiar concentrate.
If you’ve been to any specialty coffee shops in the last few years, you may have noticed a gradual trending away from dated dairy alternatives like soy milk to the now more popular almond and oat milks. (If you’re a coffee shop owner or who hasn’t yet made the jump from soy milk, to newer, more on-trend dairy alternatives, it is definitely the time to do so!)
Dairy alternatives like soy, almond, and coconut milk have been on a constant rise on coffee shop menus in recent decades.
