While College Board Announces Increasing Cost of Tuition, ILBA Coffee School is Adding Extra Courses to Meet High Demand
Five percent; This may seem like an unimpressive amount, but amidst the US's economic gridlock and ever-stagnant incomes, the College Board's announced on Wednesday of the 5 percent national increase in tuition, this fall alone. That is 5 percent more cash that Americans struggle to budget for. In the middle of all this, an entirely different scene is played out at the Ivy League Barista Academy -- the nation's top coffee school offering barista and cafe business training. This coffee school that normally takes a break for the holidays offers additional courses in December to keep up with increasing demand. But this doesn't come as a complete surprise; with less than a fourth of the cost of the average tuition, students are given the tools to thrive in a lucrative career in the coffee industry.
States nationwide have cut $15.2 billion from college funding, or 17.4 percent. Higher education is increasingly necessary to make it in the workforce; yet tuition is increasingly unmanageable. These numbers surface as presidential candidates boast their sure-fire solutions to the daunting figures; Obama hopes to expand federal student aid while Romney argues that increased aid has only encouraged colleges to charge more. The attendance demands at the ILBA Coffee School this holiday season would suggest economy-minded students have found their own solution.

This December will boast a dynamic variety of class packages to suite individual needs. The 3-Day package guides students through a robust, hands-on experience for cultivating basic barista skills. The 4-Day goes a step further, honing advanced techniques with top-standard brewing methods, espresso extraction, milk steaming, even latte art.
The 5-Day Intensive proves to be the most economic option in several ways; not only do students get the most practice and instruction for their dollar, but this unique package focuses on the operational, business side of attaining success in any coffee venture. Students are exposed to the no-nonsense practicals and logistics of managing a coffee business, branding and marketing conceptualization, even navigating government bureaucracies. There is even customized private training and roasting workshops at their 10,000 square foot roasting facility. Frankly put, no other school does this. ILBA coffee school is the only one with a course offering diversified enough to equip students to weather an ever-changing economy.
