Testimonial

“We have worked with the team from Crown in school for the past two years. Students have enjoyed the interactive nature of the teaching delivery enjoying their project day making coffees and learning barista skills. We have found the course to be exceptional value for money and the staff has always been accommodating to meet our needs.”
