Academia do Café®

Academia do Café® was born from a passion but also the goal and dream of helping to promote the consumption of quality coffee. Because coffee is not merely a drink that we take at the break from work, or the way we finish a meal, what is before us is these moments, what we take in our taste. Although Portugal is a country with a coffee culture, lack of information and knowledge makes consumers, and even coffee lovers, undemanding at the time to drink a coffee.
Have you had any coffee that left you a bas taste in your mouth? Ever thought of returning it because it was cold, burnt... very bad? Did you know that coffee may taste like chocolate, flowers or fruit? Have you ever met someone who can give you answers on everything you ever wanted to know about coffee?
Academia do Café® is a training and consulting company specialized in bespoke training courses, workshops, lectures and events about coffee. We have courses for professionals (roasters, baristas, coffee shops, restaurants, etc.) and also for lovers and coffee drinkers.
We love coffee, taste it, talk about it, but above all teach and learn about this wonderful product, so unknown to most people.
