About The Coach

Training has always been a big part of Gwilym’s 22 years in coffee: training staff in cafes he managed and then at Prufrock Coffee (London) where he was 1 of the 3 founding owners. Collaborating with machine companies, working behind bar and giving training seminars in 30 different countries gave Gwilym a wide knowledge of the coffee industry. He now stays in Czech at the training centre he created with Petra Veselá as his 2 sausage dogs demand too much attention.

Gwilym was the 2009 World Barista Champion, a World Certified judge at the WCE competitions before becoming a WCE representative. Gwilym has been on the board of Directors of the SCAE before it became the SCA and still remains an Authorised Trainer for the SCA.

The most fun he has however is his involvement with the Coffee Masters competitions as a judge and MC.

The training centre has 2 rooms, one focused on espresso and the other for brewing and sensory. The roastery is 6 minutes away from the training centre where we have 1kg and 15kg gas drum roasters.

Unless we have specific group bookings, the classes have a small number of students with a maximum of 4 people, so we can adapt to the needs of all those in the class.

All classes are in English with Czech translation if needed.
