Home Barista Workshop
Our home barista course is aimed at those who want to develop their understanding of espresso based beverages in order to improve the coffee they produce at home.
These workshops take place on our domestic espresso machines and grinders, and are very practical in nature.
We'll begin by looking at some basic barista skills such as grind distribution and tamping, before moving on to explore espresso recipes and the relationship between dose weight, espresso weight and grind setting. We'll also discuss other variables which can impact on the quality of an espresso.
We then move onto milk foaming and how to prepare the various espresso based beverages. If possible we will also look at some basic latte art techniques to practice after the session.
Following on from the course we are more than happy to advise on your home setup via phonecalls and/or email, helping you to apply your newly discovered knowledge.
Each session lasts for 3 hours and we keep the number of participants per course low to ensure each person is given as much attention as possible. All sessions begin at 9.30am unless otherwise indicated.
