Barista Master Class

In this masterclass, we focus on speciality coffee and all the skills the barista needs to showcase coffee using an espresso machine

The barista is responsible for ensuring that the hard work of the farmer, pickers, graders, cuppers and roaster does not go to waste – after all, they are the last pair of hands to come into contact with the coffee on its journey from soil to cup!

Skilled baristas can influence various brewing parameters to perfect the extraction and produce the tastiest cup of coffee!

Brewing coffee can be a science and an art, and we want you to be confident with the equipment and your ability to extract the very best flavours from our coffee.

We will tailor the session to your needs depending on your experience. Each session will include:

- An overview of espresso machines - the functions of each part of the machine.
- A discussion on espresso extraction where we will then calibrate our palates to understand over-extraction and under-extraction.
- Dialling in espresso - how we achieve the correct extraction for every shot ensuring sweetness, acidity and balance in every coffee.
- Milk texturising - achieving the correct temperature and consistency every time.
- An introduction to latte art and pouring techniques

Payment is in advance of the class. Cancellation is only permitted 7 days prior to the commencement of the class.

Please note that no refund will be issued for non-attendance.

This class is also available to book as a one-on-one class!

Enjoyable and educational

Great class led by a thoroughly knowledgeable and experienced instructor. If you want to learn how to make the most of your espresso machine, in a relaxed and informal setting, then I can recommend this class.

We're so glad that you had a good experience Brian! Thanks so much for booking the class and for taking the time to share this review! We'll look forward to welcoming you back to roastery soon!

Great overview of espresso making

Got this as a gift from a good friend. Really really enjoyed it. Incredibly knowledgeable, enthusiastic and approachable staff leading a masterclass on getting your espresso just right.

Helpful if you've already had a lot of experience using an espresso machine as a way of sharpening your technique but also for those just getting into it all as it lets you know what to taste for in a good espresso and makes you appreciate the effort that goes into a good coffee.

Again, a great, generous and insightful class. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be signing up for the filter class very soon!

Thanks so much David! Glad you enjoyed the class – look forward to seeing you at the brew class!

Excellent masterclass

I recieved a masterclass voucher as a birthday gift, something I'm so glad I attended! I learned so much about coffee and how to correctly make espresso using a proper machine. Each stage was clearly explained even down to the simple maintenance of the machine in order to stop old bitter coffee spoiling a good new cup! It amazes me how bad so many chain coffee shops treat their equipment when I see so many small independant shops making coffee correctly. Many thanks!

Thanks so much for your review Alex!

Fantastic wee class

I really enjoyed my masterclass as an easy, understandable and fun introduction to espresso and using an espresso machine. Danny who takes the class is super friendly and explained everything very clearly without any need for prior background knowledge. He also doesn’t mind getting more into a subject if you want to know more! Great class for a great price

Thanks so much for reviewing the class! We agree, Danny rocks!
