  • 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 training is given by Smith St. Barista Trainer Josh Bengough who has been working in coffee for the last 10 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.
