Procreate Coffee NYC Barista Classes at Riker’s Island:

Hello everyone, welcome! Procreate Coffee has been busy this past year. We now have a coffee program set up at Riker’s Island to teach 18-21 year old inmates barista skills. 

If you are an Island Cafe graduate, please contact Jessa here.

Barista Classes in the Community:

There are no regularly scheduled group classes available at this time. 

If you are a coffee shop seeking onsite training for you and your staff we are available Thursdays and Fridays. Click here to request more info and to schedule. 




We are one of New York City’s only independent coffee training resources. Here you’ll learn the skills to make any coffee taste fantastic while your personality and preferences will be encouraged to shine through. 

We are a small group of experienced, open-minded and dedicated coffee educators. We are not “third wave” – there’s no lab coats here – but we do believe third wave has set the highest standards for the best, sweetest, most beautiful coffees. So at Procreate Coffee NYC we’ll teach you how to reach that bar, but still have freedom to do what you want! 

Our mission is to help make the world a better place for coffee drinkers by providing classes and training to coffee lovers, baristas, coffee shops, and anyone else that wants to learn. Life is too short to drink bad coffee!


At Procreate Coffee NYC, we strongly believe in supporting our community by offering the most effective barista training available. Through small, intimate classes and sincere interest in each student, we have been able to help students meet goals. 

Coffee shop owners can learn the ropes, ask questions and make informed decisions before starting their business. Baristas can receive guidance for where to apply, how to apply, and develop the skills necessary to be a competitive candidate for most positions. Enthusiasts can connect with friends old and new by participating in a hobby that many are drawn to.

Whether you need help with your new business, building barista skills, or want to learn a new skill just for fun, we look forward to meeting you in class soon!
