Ochen Simon Eidodo, National Barista champion of Uganda 2018 and the second Barista champion of Africa 2018, is the driving force behind Chariots Coffees and Barista Academy. The establishment, located in Kampala, Uganda, is a unique blend of a coffee shop and a training facility for aspiring baristas.

Simon brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. He founded Chariots Coffees and Barista Academy in 2018 with the goal of sharing his expertise with others and promoting the high-quality coffee that Uganda has to offer and promoting the art and science of coffee making in Uganda and providing young Ugandans with the skills and knowledge to excel in the coffee industry.

The academy offers a variety of classes for coffee enthusiasts of all levels, from beginners to experienced baristas. These classes cover topics such as the history and origins of coffee, the different types of coffee beans and their characteristics, proper coffee brewing techniques, and latte art. The academy also offers hands-on training and certifications for those who want to take their skills to the next level. To date, the academy has trained over 800 baristas, equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in the coffee industry.

Chariots Coffees and Barista Academy also has a coffee shop that serves a range of delicious coffee drinks made with high-quality beans sourced from local farmers. The shop also serves food and pastries, making it the perfect spot for a quick breakfast or a leisurely afternoon break.

Beyond the coffee, Chariots Coffees and Barista Academy is also committed to giving back to the community by creating jobs and training opportunities for young Ugandans, and by working with local farmers to promote sustainable coffee cultivation. They also provide consultancy services to businesses in the coffee industry, helping them to improve their operations and increase their profits.

Simon's vision and passion have led to the creation of a unique establishment that is making a significant impact on the coffee industry in Uganda. Chariots Coffees and Barista Academy is not only a great place for coffee lovers and anyone interested in learning more about the art and science of coffee making, but it is also helping to promote the best quality of coffee in Uganda and showcase it to the local and international market.

Simon is now preparing not only a coffee to serve but plans to open up a bigger location on high street, requiring capital to finance his business growth and the opening of a coffee shop to provide the trained barista with a home to demonstrate their skills and techniques. Stay tuned to his journey, see him succeed, and watch our live Monetix interview with him this coming February 2023.
