Description

The ONA Coffee Beginner Barista Course is designed to open your eyes to the world of coffee

We equip you with the technical skills to competently operate an espresso machine. The variables are endless, however, there are three main areas to focus on that can make or break a coffee from cup to cup; Extractions, Milk Stretching & Pouring. By the end of this course, you will have a greater understanding of the correct way to perform these skills.

This course is jam packed, but it sets the foundation for accelerated learning in becoming an expert barista.

The Beginner Course is perfect for the home or (soon to be) professional barista.

Outline:

  • Green-bean journey comparing Arabica vs Robusta, Washed vs Dry Process & the journey taken prior to the café
  • Introduction to the machine and grinder, safety warnings & how to achieve consistency with manual grinding & free-pouring shots
  • Analysing the correct espresso volume, time, dose, aroma, taste & colour
  • Correct dosing, distribution & tamping
  • Fundamentals of ristretto vs espresso & extractions needed for all your café beverages
  • Break down our two-stage approach of how to achieve silky milk
  • Learn how to free-pour all your coffees to get the correct depths of foam & ideal ‘canvas’.
  • Daily & weekly maintenance needed to maintain ideal machine performance

All classes are limited to four participants & you will receive a Certificate of Achievement at the completion of the class.
