Home Barista Coffee Course

The Home Barista Coffee Course will give you the knowleade and skills to serve cafe quality coffee at home.

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 perfect if you have your own home espresso machine and  are looking for some professional training to help get the best from your equipment. Don’t worry if you don’t have your own espresso machine yet, we have a range of 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, before moving onto the 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.

Key skills:

  • Coffee – Coffee varieties, harvesting and roasting.
  • Setup – The importance of the grind, how it effects the taste and how to adjust.
  • Technique – Correct techniques for dosing, tamping and shot timings.
  • Milk – Steaming milk to perfection with lots of microfoam.
