Welcome to the online home of First Draft Coffee. We have teamed up with  The Fumbally Stables in the heart of Dublin 8 with a mission: to provide affordable coffee training and coffee classes by people obsessed with coffee! 

We are an international group of speciality coffee enthusiasts, baristas, industry professionals, authorised SCAE trainers, and national competition judges. We've run espresso bars, cafes and restaurants, trained staff, and competed in Barista competitions. We have worked all over the world and we want to tell you what we've picked up along the way! 

Our team has 20 years customer service experience in the coffee industry and is passionate about education. So, whether you’re new to the business and want to learn some essential skills or simply want to make better coffee at home, we have a range of classes and workshops to suit your needs and budget.

As well as our own unique courses and workshops we also offer a number of the SCAE Coffee Diploma System modules:
