Oskar Thölén , Course Instructor

My name is Oskar Thölén and I am the one running this course! I have been working as a barista for the past seven years, and I have also developed a huge passion for coffee during my work, which has led me to not only do the job but always look for ways to improve.

I care about the quality I give to my customers and this shows; I have often gained praise from my core customers, some even going as far as asking for me in particular to make their coffee when I am manning a different station.

I hope for you to adapt this mentality during my course so that after honing your skills you can gain the same sort of appreciation from colleagues, employers and customers alike.


Upon Completion you recieve this diploma, signed by Oskar Thölén, the course instructor
