We cover the key stages in detail & spend plenty of time practising making coffee drinks & steaming milk. The days training is given by Smith St. Barista Trainer Josh Bengough who has been working in coffee for the last 8 years. Before joining Smith Street Josh worked in the coffee industry as barista and head barista in a variety of busy chain coffee shops and independent cafés in Sheffield and South Wales. I became interested in speciality coffee and tea during this time, and before long started visiting specialist cafés and attending coffee festivals in the UK and further afield into Europe & America sampling different origins, processes and varieties in order to expand my sensory palate. Josh is Speciality Coffee Association trained. At the end of the course you will have gained a understanding of the best practice methods for brewing espresso based drinks. Who Is This Course For?
