Basic Barista Classes

Our courses are held by our own coffee gurus, all of whom have experience from roasting the green beans all the way to the finished cup.

Our Basic Barista Class is aimed at both the home enthusiast who wants to increase their knowledge and skills, and for those who are or wish to work within the hospitality industry. You do not need any specific prior knowledge to participate in and enjoy this class.

The class starts by covering the origins of coffee and the processing of the green beans. It then moves to a hands on introduction to the workings of a professional espresso machine and grinder, after which you will learn how to extract and identify the perfect espresso shot.

The class then progresses to the art of steaming and texturing milk, a key skill to making the perfect latte and cappuccino.

We will finish with cleaning and caring for your machine.

The class is presented in an informal and relaxed style with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and practice your new skills.

Half day sessions are £75 per person. They are three hours long starting at 10am
