Ask me 4 coffee also started back in 2007 by owner/operator Nadin Rathgeber. This company arose from the pressing need of well trained and knowledgeable baristas in the industry. It focused purely on delivering highest quality barista training in all its facets from home barista to International barista award. Nadin became good friends with Joop and the team during contracted work for IncaFe’ which ended up in a collaboration of quality barista training with ethically sourced organic coffee. IncaFe’ HQ is the manifestation of that and we are incredibly proud and passionate about the amazing space we are working in and the product that we work with.
IncaFe’ HQ is situated in Auckland’s creative & artisan city centre area at 31 Sale Street.
We are proud to be the only City & Guilds accredited workplace in Auckland and we are even more proud to be able to offer the International award in Barista skills to anyone who is serious about working with coffee and/or in a Cafe. You will experience our passion for organics, ethically traded commodities, carbon footprint awareness, quality & consistency, which will rub off on you, no doubt. Every cup of coffee you will prepare or consume at IncaFe’ HQ is a cup full of hard labour, commitment, passion, love, laughter and determination.
