Will the Full Day Barista Class help me find a job straight away?
This class is a great starting point for learning the foundations of making great coffee, as well as a lot of practice time on the machines. For some smaller cafes with lower volumes, this may be enough experience to start as a barista straight away. In larger establishments with higher volumes, you may need to start in a till/floor position and work your way up to a barista role.
Do I receive a certificate?
You will receive a Certification of Completion for each class you attend
Who are these classes for?
Our classes are suited to coffee enthusiasts, new baristas, café owners, and professional baristas would like to refine their skills whilst being guided by industry professionals.
Are there any pre-requisites for the classes?
- It is recommended that most students start with the Barista Basics class.
- If you have experience in making coffee and you want to focus on grinder training, book into the Barista Advanced class.
- If you are a barista who has been working in the industry for more than three years and you want to focus more on the theory and science of great espresso, come along to one of the Professional barista workshops.
- Anyone can attend a Latte Art Basics class, as long as you know how to operate an espresso machine and grinder. It is, however, recommended that you have already mastered the art of achieving microfoam to get the most out of the class.
