Beginner barista course
Learn the basics of making good espresso, texturing milk, dialling in a grinder and cleaning your machine at the end of service. Being a good barista is so much more than being able to crank out coffees quickly. In this course we’ll help you understand coffee and recognise when your recipe needs tweaking and how to do it, problem solving, team work, workflow and customer service is important too, so we’ll cover that. We always start with a little theory and save as much time as possible for practice.
Home barista course
Take your hobby to the next level or just learn how to use your new machine! In this course we’ll take you through the fundamentals of good espresso, milk texturing and troubleshoot any issues you’re having with your home machine and technique.
*Please feel free to bring your machine in for the course*
