Great Course for students who want to find a job as Barista in a specialty coffee shop.

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 make coffees quickly.

In this course we’ll help you understand coffee, Single origins, blend profiles, espresso recipes and to recognise when your recipe needs improving 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, at the end we will give you an attendance certificate and you will be able to me a good quality coffee from start to finish.

One great thing, we can run the course with minimum 2 people and maximum 4 people per course. This way you will have a very personalised experience with lots of practice.
