DESIGNED FOR BARISTA STAFF TRAINING AND HOME ENTHUSIASTS

2-Day Professional Barista Training Class

This 2-Day Barista Training Class combines our popular Espresso & Milk Skills Class and Quality Coffee Brewing into one comprehensive barista training workshop. Students will gain the skills necessary to feel confident working as a barista in a quality-oriented coffee shop environment, or as a skilled home barista. Students will learn how to properly operate an espresso machine, grinders, and traditional coffee brewing equipment. In addition, students will learn how to steam milk, prepare all the classic espresso based drinks, and maintain equipment. Students will also perform guided hands-on brewing experiments and tasting exercises with today’s most popular coffee brewing equipment to learn how to isolate and control individual factors that affect coffee’s taste. The barista skills taught in this coffee class are absolutely vital for brewing consistently great tasting coffee and espresso, and knowing how to troubleshoot off-tasting results. No experience necessary!

Upon completion of this course, students receive our internationally recognized certificate of barista training. Over the last 12 years our industry leading 2-Day Barista Training Class has been host to thousands of students from all over the world who have gone on to lead successful careers in specialty coffee!

A Modern Approach To Training – Go Further, Faster

Other barista training programs require you to take 4 separate classes (usually on separate dates) to cover only a fraction of the information and hands-on training you receive in this comprehensive 2-day course. Instead of requiring hours of power-point compulsory theory, memorization, and test-oriented training like common SCA certificate programs, we are a results-oriented program with focus on real-world, on-bar knowledge and skills that can make an immediate and measurable difference upon return to the field. Our modern approach to training enables our students to achieve more practical and useful capability in less time than any other barista training course!

Opening A Coffee Shop Business?

You should attend our 3-Day Coffee Business Master Class instead! It will cover everything in this 2-Day Barista Training Class and significantly more! This 2-Day Barista Training Class strictly provides hands-on coffee education and barista training geared to needs of baristas and home enthusiasts. No coffee business information, equipment recommendations, business resources, or other lessons from our 3-Day Coffee Business Master Class will be provided in this 2-Day Barista Class.
