Specialty Coffee Consulting

Specialty Coffee Consulting

What I am offering is that with my experience and knowledge, you can start your coffee roastery with a sustainable, scalable, and top-notch coffee program. So with well-documented practice programs, educating, managing and purchasing machines/equipment for one of the top roasting companies all around Asia and the Middle East we can bring a plethora of knowledge and connections to your projects. All consulting packages can be customized to fit your needs but areas include for coffee roastery:

  • Writing personalized training manuals and procedures.
  • Specialty Coffee Consulting via experts in Maillardreaction.org.
  • Training sessions with a staff base on the SCA coffee program.
  • Hiring and interviewing potential staff.
  • Machine + equipment testing with potential purchasing.
  • Designing coffee programs from roasters and account relationships to menu design.
  • Packaging, workflow and selling plan.
  • How to find good green coffee.
  • Branding + Social media templates and advice.
  • Merchandise and product purchasing with education for staff on sales techniques and specific specs.

And more! Reach out for more information about specialty consulting and how we can design milestones, quotes, and a tailored package to fit your business needs, but in the end, what does a consultation with me look alike? In short, there’s no set format; every client has different needs. For example, a client with an older roasting company who wants to implement and use modern roasting software seems very different from teaching a new company to how to set up and operate a cafe or a roastery. What business need is a location, and schedule will all play a part, but in general, you can assume it will involve some emails, phone calls, skype, or in-person visits, and then finally I will come to you and start training in your place. If you’re looking for more insight into one version of a typical consulting job, I also offer below items:

  • Roasting machines consulting.
  • General consulting.
  • Cafe planning.
  • Request a consulting for your related business.
