Here at Curious Roo, we know that we are not the end user and that’s why we all come from a training background. Our entire roasting team are Authorised SCA (Speciality Coffee Association) Trainers and have worked in one of the leading coffee schools in Europe (Artisan Coffee School) and it is this relationship with the coffee school that sets us apart as a roaster. When you become a wholesale customer with Curious Roo, you have all the training resources you and your team could ever need on tap and for free!

We run espresso and milk courses for any of your team on a regular basis and this is of course, on us. What we find to be really handy is that we offer one member of your team any SCA courses, which will undoubtedly expand your knowledge in not only barista skills but sensory or brewing, as your passion for specialty coffee expands. This is all complimentary to provide you with as much support as we can!

We believe this is the most comprehensive training and coffee package in the UK and we are excited to be able to offer it to our lovely customers.
