more days. more money. more fluff?

DOES MORE DAYS MAKE A BETTER COFFEE BUSINESS CLASS? SADLY, NO.

Other coffee schools learned long ago that if they add more days (and more fluff) they can charge you more money. It’s a bitter reality. Instead of spreading our coffee business class over additional days, we keep our business course focused on the things that actually matter. This way you save on tuition, hotel, travel, and time. If you are serious about your coffee business, don’t pay extra for classroom fluff and a tour around a city!
