I would like to say thank you for the efficient barista course that I’ve done today. It was really good and the trainer Chad Tilbury was really helpful and competent.
I had the opportunity to make a lot of coffees for the first time in my life and learn a lot about this segment. I’m really happy.
Thank you APSI for that.
