Trustee training visit

We’re thrilled to welcome Ashley Lopez, one of our Afri-CAN Charity Trustees and the Chief Operating Officer of London based The Department of Coffee and Social Affairs to the Afri-CAN Café in Philippi, Cape Town. Poppy Bruffell, who works in the head office of The Department of Coffee & Social Affairs, a specialty coffee shop group, joins Ashley.

Ashley and Poppy will spend the week reviewing café operations and training staff in the areas of: touch point service; customer engagement; time management; inventory analysis and monitoring and supply ordering.

‘We’re really looking forward to getting into the detail of how the café is operating and offering any helpful suggestions and training to the team here. The Afri-CAN Café is in a great location and it’s perfectly positioned in Philippi to make a very positive impact in the community.’
