BARISTA TRAINING

make - coffee - better

Do you like a cafe latte? Americano? Want to become a barista? With this qualification you'll gain the knowledge and skills you need to prepare and serve hot and cold drinks in any environment.

A qualification in Barista Skills is for a person who works as or wants to work as barista. You don't need any experience. You may already be working in the hospitality industry, but it's not a requirement to take this qualification. We recommend that you have access to an espresso machine and grinder in order to practice making drinks in your own time.

COURSE CONTENTS

  • HOW TO CRAFT THE PERFECT COFFEE
    With one-on-one mentoring from our experts and a lot of practice, by the end of the two days you will be able to brew the perfect espresso, cappuccino, latte, filter coffee, tea, hot chocolate and smoothie.

  • THE STORY BEHIND THE BEAN
    Learn about the origins of the coffee beans, the tea leaf and the cocoa bean – how and where they are grown, how they are processed and the journey they go on to get to our cup.

  • KEY COFFEE SHOP SKILLS
    The course includes helpful customer service, health and safety, machine cleaning and calibration tips

  • HOW COFFEE IS ROASTED
    On the final day of the course you will be given an exclusive look at the coffee roasting process seeing it first hand with a tour of the roastery.

  • OUR COURSE IS FOR YOU

    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.

    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.
