Being a well versed barista takes a lot of practice, but building a strong foundation in the basic skills you need will help make the learning curve less steep and have you mastering a busy rush hour behind the bar in no time! Barista Fundamentals is a 2-day workshop that covers 5 segments:
- Coffee History & Processing (including an introduction to cupping)
- Milk Science & Latte Art
- Extraction Science (including an introduction to hand brewing)
- Cafe Drinks & Workflow
Students will have plenty of hands on time on the machines dialing in different coffees as espresso, steaming milk, and making lots of drinks.
Although this class is a focus on the foundations, students will leave feeling proficient and comfortable working behind the bar at a busy cafe. We’ll have a practical “exam” at the end of the course for students to see how far they’ve come in just 2 days, and in what areas they need to focus on going forward.
