Is it worth attending a Barista course?

We have been training in barista skills for some 30 years and know that we have the expertise to push your business forward due to our vast knowledge. Not only will you produce the perfect cappuccino but we will give you many ideas on how to generate more profit and set you apart from the crowded coffee shop boom.

The training is very hands on and far from boring, and you will learn in a very comfortable and relaxed way which we find works best. When you leave you will feel proud of what you have achieved and will look forward to making those beautiful cappuccinos and lattes when you get back to work.

We teach every day out at our customer's premises and our Barista trainers will pop in from time to time just to see how you are getting on and to see if any additional training is required. Training at our purpose built training facility is available at any pre-booked time 6 days a week 9am to 8pm.

Our aim is for the highest standards and can even train you to enter the UK Barista Championships.

During the training you will learn the most important essential barista skills and will introduce you to the most delicious coffees from Caffe Carraro our chosen Italian roaster.

Some frequently asked questions

How many people do you teach per course?

Our barista courses are with no more than 8 people, this allows every person to have plenty of hands-on experience during the training which will last for approximately 3-4 hours.

When do the courses take place?

All courses are tailored around our customers needs and we can accommodate most requests. Please give us a call and we will discuss the best course of action.

What sort of things will I have to do?

A great deal of the course is designed around your own coffee menu and your drink sizes so most of the time you will be making those drinks. A majority of the drinks you will make are milk based, so a lot of time will be spent on steaming and pouring milk. You will also be making an espresso, cappuccino, caffe latte, Americano, Caffe Mocha and delicious Italian hot chocolate.

Are you a certified City and Guilds satellite training centre?

Our Barista trainers have 30 years worth of experience and have been BSA judges. They have also got the Certificate of accreditation for Trainer for the City & Guilds barista Skills level 2 VRQ. We are awaiting for full site accreditation to be able to offer certified City and Guilds courses but expect to offer this by 2013. Our trainers are professionals and are here to make you feel comfortable and ready to learn.
