Barista course breakdown:
Our coffee barista courses begin with a session on the theory of coffee, where you'll learn background knowledge as you enjoy tasting a range of our current roasts.
After coffee theory, you'll be trained by one of our baristas in the science of milk texturing and espresso. Discover how to steam your milk to the perfect texture, and gain skills that can be transferred to any home machine.
During the course, we'll demonstrate how to dial in a grinder, talking through each component of making espresso - from dosing to yield and extraction.
You'll also learn how to taste-test your espresso for an enhanced sipping experience, and learn how to fix coffee equipment issues with tips that are easy to replicate at home.
Last but not least, latte art. By the end of the course you'll be able to make yourself a beautifully tasting latte with perfect milk topped by a pretty heart!
