  • “Recommend it to anyone who wants to immerse deeper into the world of coffee or those who wants to take a career in coffee more seriously. I was a beginner and the training was fun and rewarding. Jim made sure I practiced enough to be familiar with the essential preparation for delivering THE cup of coffee. I will never ever look at the coffee machine and my coffee the same way again!”

  • “One of the luckiest things that has ever happened to me is stumbling across Jim Watson through a Google search for ‘barista training in Scotland’. I honestly feel as though Jim cares as much about the success of my business as I do. Jim gives 110% to everything he does and I would recommend his training without reservation. Support from Jim does not stop when the training session ends, he’s always at the end of a phone and nothing seems to be too much bother, a rare quality these days!”
