Java Republic has become the first Irish roasting company to be awarded a certification of Premier Training Campus by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).
Achieving SCA Campus accreditation requires demonstrating compliance with standards for education excellence and recognises Java Republic’s facilities offer a unique setting for coffee education.
Java Republic has been training baristas since it first opened almost 20 years ago, and in 2014 it fully committed to the SCA standards.
Commenting on the certification, Managing Director of Java Republic, Grace O’Shaughnessy, said: “At Java Republic we are always willing to go further, dig deeper and aim higher. With education at the heart of everything we do, the SCA Premier Training Campus certification is an important team achievement which acknowledges our dedication to providing world-class coffee with a conscience in every cup.”
Java Republic’s team of coffee trainers, led by Vini Arruda who was the first Accredited SCA Trainer (AST) in Ireland, offer a range of courses to suit everyone from beginners through to experienced baristas looking to take their career to recognised professional standards.
