We are very happy to have Kate, our Barista on staff who is an excellent teacher and passionate about coffee in all its forms, offer barista training. This three hour class is popular with people who are passionate about coffee or are looking to work in the coffee industry. It will concentrate on texturising and pouring milk and being able to manage the grind to extract a perfect shot of coffee. This class will run in a very small group (maximum of six), and will give you loads of practice on our commercial machine.
Many students who have completed this class go on to work in cafes and restaurants locally and interstate.
You will receive a Certificate at the end of your training class.
Enjoy this coffee session which includes all your coffee tasting, plus a sweet treat from the Sauce Kitchen cafe!
Come along on your own and make some new friends, or make a group get-together. Our classes are great fun in a friendly atmosphere in our beautiful historic building.
* Please note, our classes require a minimum of four participants to operate, you will be eligible for a refund or re-schedule if a class does not go ahead.
Having had an expresso machine for some time, and having tried to learn from the internet how to use it, there was nothing like being there and having someone show you. You don't get the same sounds and feel from the internet, nor the ability to ask questions. And there was plenty of opportunity to practice on their machine with helpful guidance. A very enjoyable and worthwhile experience which I'm putting into practice.
Kate is a great trainer. All processes thoroughly explained. There was lots of time for hands on practise & several different coffee styles were also explained. Highly recommended.
I didn't realise there was so much care and knowledge required to make an excellent coffee beverage. Excellent class, I throughly enjoyed every aspect.
