Terms & Conditions

1.0 ADMINISTERING OF BARISTA COURSES

The following policy relates to the extremely rare case that we do not have sufficient student numbers to run a course. Please note this is extremely rare and has only been invoked three times in the last 5 years.

1.1 Sometimes we (The Espresso School) are unable to run advertised barista courses due to unusually low enrolment numbers. We will advise you the day before and/or on the day of any such cancellation of a barista course via telephone and/or email. You may reschedule to another course date or simply be refunded in full.

1.2 Late comers who are more than 20 minutes late will be denied entry to the class. Students will be treated as absentees and required to reschedule as per section 4.0 of this document.


Extreme weather policy


1.3 The building The Espresso School is located in is North facing, as such is exposed to direct sunlight all day. If the maximum temperature for the day is expected to be 35 degrees Celsius or more by the Bureau of Meteorology, afternoon (Level 2 and Level 3) classes may be deferred to the next scheduled session. Whilst we do have air-conditioning inside, it cannot deal with the combined extreme heat load from outside plus the internal heat generated from 5 commercial espresso machines and a commercial dishwasher. Morning classes (Level 1) will be unaffected and run as scheduled. Students will be notified via email of any such deferment via WeTeachMe. 


2.0 CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

Due to the small numbers of students per course:

2.1.0 You can cancel this order within 24 hours after we have received it. All cancellation requests must be emailed to us via our contact page located at http://www.espressoschool.com.au/contact and quote your order/reference number.

2.1.1 If a refund is approved, the refund shall be returned to you via the method used to process the original transaction.

2.1.2 Any refunds via WeTeachMe will be less any transaction fees incurred by the vendor (The Espresso School).

2.2.0 No refunds or cancellations for barista courses will be allowed within three (3) days or 72 hours of the scheduled barista course or event.

2.2.1 If a barista course is paid and received within three (3) days or 72 hours of the scheduled barista course, you may still cancel your booking and receive a refund within 24 hours as per Section 2.1.0 above.

2.2.2 If you have chosen to complete multiple barista courses, once your first barista course has begun, no refunds will be issued. There is no time limit in which your remaining levels must be completed. We remain committed to delivering the courses you have enrolled in. 


3.0 RESCHEDULING POLICY

3.1 No rescheduling of barista courses will be allowed within three (3) days or 72 hours of the scheduled barista course or event unless a $52 rescheduling fee is paid, including bookings made within the 72-hour window.

17 January 2018 • Espresso Basics - How to make coffee

I had a really fun time and came out of the class feeling I had learnt a lot. The session was structured really well and there was a good mix of "theory" and "practice". As David said, learning the how and why of coffee is important so we can adjust to different machines, conditions, tastes, etc. I would highly recommend this class!

It was my pleasure to meet David. He is so pro and warm welcoming his students. The basic course in comparison to the other classes I attended was so diffrent. Not only work on coffee menu which many classes more concentrating only for and forget the rest, but he also correcting you in making the most delicious coffee you might ever make.
