The specialized Valenio team designs and organizes coffee sections at every event & fair related to gastronomy and catering. More specifically:
Since 2016, Valenio team and Valantis Lambrianidis have been organizing and curating ‘All about café’. This is the first major coffee event in northern Greece, organized as part of the hotel and professional equipment fair Hotelia, at the International Exhibition Center of Thessaloniki.
‘All about café’ is dedicated to the art of creating coffee based on living unique experiences and attending specialized seminars (‘All About Café seminars’) held by the best representatives of the sector.
Valantis Lambrianidis was a presenter and stage manager at all the ‘Coffee Show’ exhibitions organized in Athens for two years in a row. “The Coffee Show” are exhibitions dedicated to coffee and its culture, focusing on education and training through seminars and demonstrations. Valenio team curates the stage where top baristas from all over the world are invited to conduct workshops, masterclasses and coffee tastings.
Our team participates in the educational program of “Athens Coffee Festival” with suggestions. “Athens Coffee Festival” includes more than 75 hours of presentations, demonstrations, specialized seminars and workshops. At the same time, Valantis Lambrianidis participates in the Panhellenic Roasting Championship organized by SCA Greece as part of the event with the role of a certified judge.
As part of HORECA, SCA coffee championships are organized every year, in which distinguished Greek coffee professionals compete. Our specialized team has been behind the training of some of the best champion baristas in the country in recent years.
Who would be better suited to train a coffee company’s salespeople than a certified baristi trainer? The coffee trainer of the Valenio team upgrades the level of your services, training the team in the sales department on the basic principles of right coffee sampling and extraction depending on the business they are addressing. It also offers basic tasting knowledge that is useful to any coffee seller.
A coffee salesperson must know the raw material at hand very well and know how to handle it properly. Also, he must know the profile of the coffee he is sampling, with the ultimate goal of proper branding. Our long experience in the coffee market in Europe gives us the competitive advantage of concentrated knowledge. We know the problem before you do and we already have the solution!
Knowing that in coffee businesses the staff is usually trained in coffee production by the salesperson of the cooperating company, who does a planned promotional training, we make the difference! The Valenio team operates independently, without being tied to any particular coffee company, and offers exactly what each individual shop needs: Personalized training for each member of the business, to ensure that coffee is produced by all hands with the same quality and consistency.
Without having to change the coffee you buy in your business, you will optimize the taste effect you offer your customers. Our team offers essential consulting services that will immediately make a difference (proper coffee machine settings, recipe for maximum coffee yield used, etc.).
Speed and taste! Speed and knowledge! This is what every hotel chain is looking for when it comes to coffee and the Valenio team knows very well what techniques every worker on the production line needs to be trained in.
Knowing that in hotels, many different people besides baristas are called to make coffee, our team has created customized training programs for the staff, so that there is stability in the quality of the coffee drinks from all hands on a daily basis. It also offers basic knowledge for the right preparation of each coffee menu.
