Whether you're a home barista enthusiast or a budding café gun, having a solid foundation of practical skills and coffee knowledge will help you get the best out of your coffee.  

This course is jam packed to give you all the basics you need to start creating delicious coffees at home or in the café, and will give you a holistic view of your coffee, starting from the seed all the way to your cup. 

In Level 1 you will learn about:

  • The fascinating journey from green bean to cup.
  • The necessary equipment for quality brewing.
  • An introduction to coffee recipes and taste balance.
  • Correct technique for perfect espresso shots.
  • Preparing silky milk and how to pour it

 We recommend this course as a wonderful starting point for beginners, home baristas, or anyone that wants to improve their fundamentals. No experience is necessary, but even seasoned baristas can learn a lot in this course.

All classes are limited to three participants each with their own machine as per social distancing requirements. These classes used to run with up to 6 participants meaning you will gain a lot of personal one on one time with a trainer!

Hugh was amazing and really knew his coffee. Being taught by someone who is passionate, really shows and is inspiring. This is coming from someone who hates coffee. Understanding the time it takes to make a decent coffee has given me a new understanding of coffee.
