The CCC – A centre for success
All-around perfect coffee – this is what 360° coffee competence means. This includes the ideal coffee machine as well as essential knowledge about coffee and preparing it professionally. We communicate this expertise in our in-house Coffee Competence Centre (CCC) and provide you with support to make your coffee business even more successful.
For our customers and partners
We will be glad to draft individualised, market-specific coffee concepts for our customers and partners. And with the «Create your own CCC» concept, we support you in the process of building or expanding your own CCC and achieving success on your own.
Our diverse course offering gives you the ability to dive into the world of coffee and learn more about handling the coffee machine. Ultimately, the best coffee is the coffee that tastes good – because it results in satisfied guests and higher sales.
For our employees
Our employees are equally important stakeholders here. We teach basic knowledge during special training courses and, depending on requirements and interests, in specialised advanced courses and workshops. This affects every single work step, and our employees become ambassadors for coffee competence – internally and externally.
For research and development
The extensive coffee knowledge of our CCC specialists flows directly into the development and advancement of our coffee machines.
Courses and services
At the Coffee Competence Centre, our customers and partners get the skills to become coffee experts. In varying, mutually reinforcing modules, they become familiar with the relevant quality and taste factors in coffee production and preparation. Additionally, they learn which parameters affect coffee quality. Whether for novices or for those who are more advanced, our courses are just as varied as a good cup of coffee.
The CCC gives you support in selecting the right instruments for your coffee business, in building up or developing your own coffee competence further, and/or in collaboration with roasters, to name just a few topics – always with the objective of providing high-quality coffee beverages, courtesy of qualified knowledge, whether in a café or a large enterprise.
