Barista Intensive

Our two week Intensive Barista course, available to beginners, will immerse you in the world of coffee.


You learn everything there is to know about coffee, from where it is grown through how the roasting process effects the flavours you taste in the cup. Hands on experience is a major component of this course, allowing you plenty of time to practice on professional machines. This enables you to perfect your techniques making excellent coffee every time. 

Roastery Trip

The roastery day trip is the highlight of the course for many students. Here, you get to watch a top roaster select and roast many different types of beans, providing insight and helping to complete your coffee knowledge.
