  • A two part course to master the perfect coffee
  • Discover the history of coffee
  • Learn about making the coffee and the milk

This master coffee course will turn you into a true barista, no matter if you are looking for a job as a barista, running a cafe or are just passionate about coffee. During this two-part course, industry-trained instructors will coach you in all the skills needed to make fantastic coffee!

What's Included?

  • Two advanced training courses: one covering the essential basics of coffee-making and the other focusing on coffee art using techniques such as etching, fudge art and free-pouring
  • Nationally Recognised Training (RTO 91399)

Your coffee course consists of two components that can be attended back-to-back or on separate days. During the three-hour basics class you will learn:

  • Where coffee comes from, how it was discovered and refined by the Italians. Even most baristas don't know that coffee is the seed from within a cherry that grows on a tree!
  • How coffee is grown and harvested. You need to know this if you are going to discover the many tastes and aromas of coffee from different origins
  • How coffee is blended and roasted. As they say, 'in the end, it's all in the blend'
  • How to pour the perfect espresso shot. Under-extracted and it's too weak, over-extracted and it's too bitter
  • The art of frothing creamy, textured milk. You don't want to create 'roadhouse' froth and you'll learn how to avoid it!
  • How to pour all the drinks in a café menu with style. Think you can pour a cappuccino - but can you pour a vienna, long macchiato and a doppio?
  • How to clean your equipment to maintain the taste of your coffee.

During the two-hour coffee art class you will learn:

  • Advanced training in etching, fudge art and free-pouring.

Session Length

This course consists of two components - 1x3 hours and 1x2 hours, which you can take back-to-back or on different days. Courses are run on selected dates throughout the year.

  • Also note that this course involves an online component (1-2 hours) to be completed prior to the class, so you can hit the ground running and make your course as practical as possible!
