Baristas in training

By Support - November 23rd, 2021 | Posted in Blog

St Philip’s school is pleased to announce a new social enterprise. Students and staff have teamed up with a local food bank to provide customers with teas and coffees.  The Talbot House Cafe, has proved a big hit at the foodbank.  The customers have been enjoying lattes and cappuccinos all made by our students. 

The group are being taught how to use a coffee machine and also learning basic barista skills.  The training, coffee machine and beans have all been supplied by our friends at Coffee Bay in Tolworth.  We are also using a Makaton based ordering system, which is proving very popular. One student has told us that it’s their “highlight of the week.”
