“I recently attended Jim’s school to cover the foundation in Sensory, Brewing and Barista. I have to say that Jim’s passion for his art and skills are second to none. Over the three days, I became totally absorbed and gained a wealth of knowledge both theoretical and practical.
I have much more to learn of course but I feel I can now move forward in achieving my personal goal of setting up my own speciality coffee shop. Of course, and it’s reassuring to know, Jim is there to support whenever its required.
Thank you Jim!”
