Insights from the ambassador of coffee culture - brought to you by Dormans Coffee Ltd.
Edward Njoroge has been training baristas since 2014 at the Nairobi School of Coffee, formerly Dormans Coffee School.

“The school was started in 2006 to try and create coffee awareness and nurture youth to get into the coffee business,” said Edward.

His story starts with him working as a steward at a Dormans Coffee Shop and watching baristas brew cappuccinos. “I started by watching baristas make latte for six months before I got a chance to train as one, and now I teach the next generation of coffee artisans.”

Through a curriculum covering coffee processing from cherry to cup, Edward and other trainers certified by the Specialty Coffee Association turn students into coffee brewing experts and ambassadors of coffee drinking culture.

Coffee brewing at the school is treated as both an art and a science, pushing alumni from the Nairobi School of Coffee to win the Kenya National Barista Championship in addition to other international brewing competitions.

Claris, who is 5'2 ft., has been crowned the Most Valuable Player in several leagues and regularly is the highest scorer. "Playing basketball also enables me to keep fit and relax after work," she said.
