Located in the Short North cafe at 745 N. High Street in Columbus, Ohio, our Training Center is a cozy and clean lab in the middle of a bustling city and busy cafe. This is where we’ll develop your skills!
The OLC Training Center is set up to allow both retail and wholesale customers to further their education, with the tools and equipment necessary to brew coffee and espresso, cup, and engage in classroom studies and debate. Learn to pull shots on our La Marzocco Strada MP, giving you full control over the brew process. Prepare a perfectly-brewed cup of our latest coffee using a Chemex or Hario device. Cup a variety of coffees, both samples and production roasts, or even profile roasts. Learn about coffee cultivation, how to taste coffee, or how our coffee is sourced.
Our educational offerings include a Professional Barista Development series, special workshops targeted to the home barista/brewer, and of course, our regular weekly Public Cuppings.
