UCC Coffee revamped training suite awarded accreditation

UCC Coffee UK & Ireland’s refurbished training suite, dedicated to its unique Coffeeworks training programme, has been named as one of the world’s leading locations for training, after receiving Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) Premier Campus accreditation.

Following its upgrade earlier this year, the Milton Keynes-based Coffeeworks suite becomes one of only six Premier Campuses in the UK. It’s now the third UCC Coffee training suite globally to receive the accreditation, joining the Total Coffee Solution’s Kobe and Tokyo campuses.

Gareth Davies, head of coffee excellence, UCC Coffee UK & I, said, “We developed this suite to provide the best possible platform for us to train customers and our own team. From the equipment on offer, to the flow and set-up, every detail has been considered to make it the perfect training environment.

'Our aim was to create the right environment for our needs. Achieving this and then being aligned with an industry recognised name this early in our journey is phenomenal.”

To be named as one of the world’s leading training spaces, assessors look for sites that provide an exceptional environment alongside industry-leading courses and educational materials. Everything from the quality of equipment through to the level of lighting is reviewed through a thorough day-long assessment from the SCA. With over 40 individual factors assessed, it takes a lot to make the grade and be named a Premier Campus.

Coffeeworks gives operators the visibility, skills and knowledge required to serve exceptional coffee across an entire estate, every time. With its wide range of courses and unique Coffee Excellence Check, the programme makes great coffee simple.
