Rated 5 out of 5 by Enlightening, entertaining and educational! This course is wonderful for people intending on becoming baristas. I however have a love of coffee and did this with my mum, we had a great time (the trainers are hilarious and outright comedians) which helped take the edge off the intensity of this course. You can drink every cuppa you brew and it is very hands on with the right amount of theory. You learn a lot in 3 hours. I highly recommend this to anybody with a passion for coffee!! 4 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic The staff were very supportive and energetic. Great experience! 3 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A good 3 hour investment to expand your knowledge and get a true appreciation about coffee What I like from the class are lesson materials and concepts were easy to understand. Theory and practice sessions were well organized and blended. The instructors had great sense of humour so the attendees still had fun while obtaining quite packed volume of knowledge and felt no pressure when having to complete a test at the end of the class. The overall experience took my understanding about barista job to a new level. A good barista must be a master of juggling who has to work under pressure timeline, understand well about coffee, has high concentration ability but is still relaxing enough to bring a quality coffee cup with smile to their customers. 22 April 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A bit too serious My aim was to have some fun learning how to make coffees just as a 'mum'. This was a serious course intended for people wanting to work in the industry. My daughter and I still had a great time, just a shame their coffee wasn't to my taste. Very well staffed and they were very calm when I sent milk flying in all directions - turned the steam knob the wrong way despite their obvious signs! Oops! 17 April 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by This was a great experience My husband enjoys brewing his own coffee at home and have several coffee machines. So for his birthday I gave him a gift certificate for the Barista course ( I went along also) and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommended it for all Barista wannabes. 10 April 2013
