Barista training

The best coffee in the world will taste terrible if it is not made correctly. Espresso extraction involves high pressure, high temperature, and short times so it is very easy to get wrong.

Alongside our wholesale and equipment supply, the third and possibly most important factor is staff training. We can train your staff from scratch,  deliver some broad refresher training or concentrate on a specific area like latte art.

We run run our Barista training courses in small groups with usually no more than 6 people. This creates the perfect environment for you to learn and have plenty of hands-on practice. Private bookings are also available.
