Carbon-Zero Coffee Roasters Launch New Training School

February 16, 2016

Country’s First Carbon-Zero Coffee Roasters Launch New Training School

New Zealand’s first carbon-zero certified coffee roaster, IncaFé, is now offering Auckland’s only City & Guilds Barista training courses at its new Sale Street premises.

Located within IncaFé’s Brew Bar, the new training school opens on 22nd February and will be run by seasoned barista trainer, Nadin Rathgeber, who has over 13 years’ experience training baristas with her company Ask me 4 Coffee.

“The really exciting aspect of The IncaFé Training School is that we are presently the only facility in Auckland to offer the globally renowned accreditation. The multi-functional Sale St premise offers a modern, well-equipped yet very relaxed space for training and we are excited to use it to its full potential,” says Nadin.

“We’ll be giving our trainees the highest level of training possible with much more practical coffee making experience than most other courses provide” says trainer Mike Dickson, an experienced barista and barista judge.

The IncaFé Training School also offers something for all coffee enthusiasts ranging from short courses to brush up on home coffee making to more comprehensive beginners and barista upskilling courses for professional baristas.

Established in 2007, IncaFé has been innovative from the outset, having combined an inherent passion for coffee, organics and sustainability to create what has become today one of New Zealand’s most successful coffee roasters. All IncaFé coffee is certified organic and Fairtrade, and the company is CarboNZero certified.

With the original roasting facility in New Plymouth, IncaFé coffee is distributed throughout the Asia Pacific region and has won awards both in New Zealand and internationally including gold medals in the 2012 and 2015 NZ Coffee Awards for its hallmark brew, Marin Estate, not to mention the 2013/14 NZ Coffee of the Year Supreme Trophy for its Ethiopian blend sold as Habesha in the IncaFé range.
