Ideal for the Home Brewer (Basic 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 also 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 espresso and we run you through the process step by step.  You will also learn how to us the V60 Pour over, French press and the world famous Aeropress. Get ready for the perfect extraction!

If you would like 1-2-1 training or maybe larger group training then please send us an email with details and we'll get back to you.
