  • 300 British pounds
  • Scotland Street


This unique course has been developed to give you the skills & valuable real world experience to be a professional barista. Maximum of 3 people per Course. Day 1 We cover every aspect of espresso based drink making including coffee bean selection, espresso machine cleaning, making espresso shots, brew recipes, milk steaming & drink preparation. We cover the key stages in detail & spend a lot of time practising making coffee drinks & steaming milk. The first 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. Day 2 & 3 What's really unique about this course is you now get to spend 2 shifts working alongside one of our time served expert baristas in our own coffee shop, which gives you a real understanding of what a professional Barista's role is, how to deal with customers, operate a POS systems, manage workflow, prioritise tasks, work under pressure & ultimately confidence in the skills you've learned in day 1. At the end of the course you will have gained a understanding of the best practice methods for brewing espresso based drinks & how these are applied in a real world environment. Who Is This Course For? A new barista looking at developing their barista skills. Someone wanting to work as a professional barista but doesn't have the skill set & work experience or if your looking to set up a business that serves espresso based drinks to the public such as a coffee shop, cafe, deli or bar.
