Mastery, perfection and exclusivity
Three concepts associated with Marabans that we would love to transmit and share through our academy, courses and training.
For more than 25 years we have been teaching, promoting and disseminating the art of coffee.
Marabans Academy was created with the aim of providing professional training for both baristas and coffee lovers. We have designed a range of courses based on exclusive and technical training methods that will broaden your knowledge, regardless of whether you are seeking a career in this field or you simply love coffee and would like to practise at home.
Making a great cup of coffee requires a solid knowledge, the right training and ongoing refresher courses to update your know-how.
We have therefore designed two types of courses: an intensive 8-hour training session and two 4-hour sessions, targeting coffee lovers, bartenders, baristas, waiters, coffee shops owners, coffee stores, restaurants, hotels and speciality shops, etc.
Joan Simó, an experienced barista with a SCA (Specialty Coffee Association) qualification and Marabans' Experience Manager, is in charge of delivering the courses.
