Founded in 2002, the Académie has been a tremendous success story. Each year, OVER 700 PROFESSIONALS trust us to help them become real coffee ambassadors, by following our workshops on the art of expresso, roasting and coffee-cocktails or barista diploma courses. In our CONSULTING ROLE, we have also helped many clients to develop their offer and come up with new concepts. The Académie du Café® is approved for delivering SCA BARISTA skills certifications and Barista coffee diplomas.

Training takes place at the Cafés Richard head office, near Paris.
 All the courses include a site tour where you can learn about artisan and industrial coffee roasting, and follow the green coffee on its journey from delivery to packaging.

In a professional atmosphere, you will find a tasting room, a laboratory and a workshop with 6 fully-equipped Barista stations (with machines, grinders, blenders...). There are cameras projecting onto a video screen, so you can zoom in on the trainer as they perform each technical operation.
