Amid one of the fastest growing tourism regions in South Africa, Ciro Beverage Solutions (Ciro) will open an additional training centre at its new showroom in Nelspruit to demonstrate its commitment to the burgeoning local coffee market.
This will add to their stable of eight Ciro Coffee Academies across the country and demonstrates Ciro’s commitment to quality coffee preparation and its investment in barista skills training to benefit coffee lovers nationwide, as well as South Africa’s tourists.
The showroom will display Ciro’s extensive product offering to the hotel, restaurant and office markets. This includes patented technology from global coffee brands such as Lavazza and Douwe Egberts as well as best-in-class equipment from international partners/suppliers including vending, fully-automatic espresso machines and filter coffee solutions to name a few.
The barista training, which is offered by the Ciro Coffee Academy, covers subjects from the history of coffee, coffee cultivation, production, palate development, cupping and familiarisation with the required equipment to make proper espresso-based coffee with an emphasis on innovation, creativity and skill. The training centre has several work stations, where trainees will be able to use the machines and review their coffee making techniques with a trained and qualified professional.
Ciro Regional Sales Manager Anton Marx comments, “Growth in the speciality coffee market has doubled in recent years and for this reason, the new state-of-the-art training centre will enable Ciro to offer first-hand knowledge and experience of our specialised products and equipment. It will also give the industry the support needed to train individuals and ensure that local baristas have in-depth and extensive knowledge of the coffee they prepare with the intention of serving the ultimate cappuccino every time.”
Launching in October, the showroom and training centre is situated at Ciro‘s offices in Rocky’s Drift and will be open to channels in the greater Mpumalanga region including; Witbank, Piet Retief, Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, Timbavati Game Reserve as well as the Kruger National Park.
