The espresso machine is now finding it’s way into our homes more than ever. This is due to with to so many high quality domestic machines being available. Our Home Barista Coffee Course is offered to those with a home espresso machine looking for some professional training to help get the best from their equipment. We have a range of home machines for you to practice on.(we encourage you to bring in your own machine , if you have one, so you can get the best possible tips)
We start the course with a brief background on where coffee comes from and the differences in roasting and quality, therefore we can develop a good palette for taste. Then we will show you how on our professional espresso machines and get you comfortable with extracting espresso before moving onto our home espresso machines for lots of practice. We can also cover milk texturing here if your machine includes a milk feature.
This session allows you to ask plenty of questions and develop some great skills, including maintaining the your machines for longevity.
