Barista Training

We provide espresso training for all levels of experience, from those that are new to espresso through to refresher courses for the experienced Barista.

Tailor made Barista courses are held at the training facility in our Roastery in Devonport. So whether you are setting up a new cafe, have just purchased an existing business, taken on new staff, or simply want a refresher course to fix any bad habits - just give us a call.

It's our experience that the Training Courses are more effective when class sizes are kept small, with no more than 4 students, so that everyone can get hands-on with adequate machine time. The sessions are usually 2 hours in length, and while there is absolutely no susbstitute for real cafe experience a novice Barista can usually expect to become competent after 2 or 3 sessions.

Before each training session we assess the level of the students and design a training course to suit, whether this be an introduction to espresso, through to more advanced concepts such as latte art, speed work or equipment maintenance. For more information please call 09 445 1816.
