The ASEAN Coffee Institute (ACI) Barista Class Level 1 opened for the first time in the Philippines last Dec. 15-16 at the UCC Coffee Academy.
Country Lead Trainer Robert Francisco led the two-day intensive class with attendees from a wide range of occupations. The students had a field day trying out the espresso machines and learning how to steam milk and pour but also had a challenging last hour as Francisco gave them written exams.
Commune owner Ros Juan, Trainer Vanessa Caceres, and Assistant Trainer Adrian Bersaba aligned standards for the OJT run for the attendees.
The success of the first run made us set the next schedule for Feb. 9-10, 2023 also at UCC Coffee Academy and On the Job (OJT) at Commune Café in Poblacion, Makati.
The test results and the OJT assessment will be handed over to the ACI for the release of the certificates for all the attendees.
