Barista Course: Ideal for Anyone

Perfect your milk steaming skills

The barista course is ideal for people who are just starting in coffee and know nothing about coffee except how to drink it. Yet the course will also be really helpful for baristas who have been making coffee for a while yet have never had training from us before.

We have trained many people who have been making coffee for years and felt they learnt so much during the course. The course is really good for anyone and a lot of fun too. During the training you will learn the most important essential barista skills. We will teach you what coffee is, how it grows and how it is harvested. We explain how coffee is roasted and we talk about freshness and packaging.

You will learn a lot about producing the finest espressos and we run you through the process step by step. This means you will learn how to calibrate a coffee grinder, how to use good dosing techniques, how to tamp the coffee and look for the perfect extraction.

Ethically sourced, seasonal blends

Enjoying a delicious coffee is one of life’s simplest pleasures. It’s a small moment of calm in a busy day. The way it’s prepared is part of this.
