The School of Coffee

The Koffieschool (The School of Coffee)  is an independent Coffee Training Centre and we are not affiliated to any coffee brand. We are a member of the Speciality Coffee Association (SCA) and provide approved and universally recognised courses according to their coffee skills program and sustainability program.

Joost Leopold (founder and coffee expert) has been in the coffee business since 2004. He worked at one of Holland first speciality coffee roasters BOOT Koffie. He continued his career as a coffee trainer at Espresso Service West and has also been an espresso machine supplier. Joost became an SCA authorised trainer and together with Bregje Deben, established the Koffieschool in 2011.
