RED BAND ACADEMY BARISTA TRAINING

Gangstar Café has entered into an exciting partnership to launch the first Red Band Barista Academy in Cape Town in 2021. 
Through teaching the Red Band philosophy we will be training young men and women out of prison in barista skills. 
This will empower them to have a tangible skill to become more employable and work either in Gangstar or within the coffee industry. 
Alongside the barista training, each student is mentored and assessed so they can be challenged to grow in all areas of their lives.
