This course is ideal for new baristas, home enthusiast or someone just curious as to how their favourite coffees are made. If you’re pulling sour shots, inconsistent milk steaming or just want to get started then the Barista Basics is the course for you.
We’ll start with a look into basic coffee terminology with a brief explanation of what they all mean so that you have enough to hold your own with even the most tattooed barista.

Next up is an introduction to milk steaming and texturing with a big focus on drinks assembly giving you the chance to get hands on making your own cappuccino, latte or flat white.
