Based in Ealing Broadway, London, Artisan Coffee School is an SCA (Speciality Coffee Association) certified training centre.

We offer a wide variety of courses that cover everything from how to brew a better cup of coffee at home to how to set up your own coffee shop, and all our trainers are industry professionals who use their experience and insight to ensure that everyone who attends has a bloody good, educational time.

At Artisan Coffee School, we believe in not only providing our students with excellent hands-on experience but also in immersing them in all the different aspects of the coffee trade, from grower to roaster to barista to cup.

Founded in 2015 by Edwin and Magda Harrison, Artisan Coffee School has quickly grown into one of Europe’s leading providers of quality coffee education – and we’re not slowing down anytime soon.

Inessa Wong

Head of Trainings

After burning out from her 9-5 (or more like 10-23) writing job, Inessa resorted to the only other thing she thought she was good at—coffee. And as it turns out—she’s pretty good at it.

She worked as a barista for a little over a year back home in Malaysia, before making her way over to London and straight to Artisan Ealing’s doors.

When she isn’t making you your perfect cup of coffee, she’ll be at home binging on anime or reading through her amassing collection of graphic novels.

I'm Q Arabica Grader, CQI Lecture and Head of Coffee in Curious Roo Roastery. In Artisan Coffee School I'm a Lead Trainer for Sensory Education.
My mission is to improve the quality of coffee and the lives of the people who produce it.
