ABOUT US

Los Angeles Barista Academy
(LAB Academy)

Located in the Los Angeles District, LA Barista Academy originally opened in 2008 as the Barista Training Center. In 2013, the Barista Training Center was rebranded and became the LA Barista Academy (LaB Academy).

 

Since then, we’ve tingled taste buds all across southern California and developed countless recipes and formulas that our experts have passed down to aficionados, professional baristas, and boutique coffee shops.
