Cultiva Coffee will be hosting classes in participation with Southeast Community College this fall!

Barista Classes

Coffee Classes

Classes are led by Jon Ferguson, founder and roaster for Cultiva Coffee  in Lincoln, Nebraska. He has traveled extensively to countries of origin, including Honduras, El Salvador, Rwanda, Brazil, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Ethiopia.  He has judged many regional barista and brewer’s cup competitions and one national barista competition. Ferguson was trained by a renowned barista trainer and coffee roasting company in Seattle, Wash., and is a coffee Q-grader through Coffee Quality Institute. He actively volunteers with The Specialty Coffee Association of America, helping in cupping and roasting seminars at SCAA national conventions. His previous experience in the Peace Corps as a Hillside Farming Agricultural Extensionist in Honduras has fueled his passion for sharing his dedication to consumer awareness on the ecological impact coffee has taken on our planet and what we can do to improve relationships with coffee farmers abroad.
