Barista Skills

What’s the difference between a latte and a flat white? Why does milk screech loudly in some cafes? Why does the barista roll their eyes when I ask for ‘extra hot’? - These are some of the questions you will find answers to in our barista short courses, designed for students with no barista experience looking to learn the basics of espresso coffee. These courses are highly practical, with about 70% of the class time spent making coffee

Gain new knowledge and employable skills, meet new people and jump into the the world of coffee!
