81: San Diego Coffee Training Institute

Meet Savannah Phillips, the woman behind San Diego Coffee Training Institute. The original idea for SDCTI was to be a training space inside Cafe Virtuoso where they could teach classes to wholesale clients on coffee prep. Savannah came up with the idea to make it a nonprofit, which was inspired by a desire to work directly with marginalized individuals in the surrounding community, including homeless, youth aging out of foster care, and individuals recently released from incarceration. #givingback Plus, have you ever heard of the World Barista Championship? I seriously had no idea this kind of thing existed, but Savannah tells us all about it!
