Includes coffee art class

Barista Basics Gift Certificate

Master Barista Class - 5 hours (includes 2 hour coffee art class)

Master Barista can be completed in one day or split over separate days (3 hours one day, 2 hours on another). It is the ultimate power session taught by trained Cert IV professionals. Our teacher/student ratio is unrivalled in the training business. We have unlimited milk and coffee, do not recycle old milk and coffee and do not waste students' time getting them to watch copious videos during the course or stack dishwashers. We present using proper live demonstrations.

Master Barista encapsulates our Barista Basics course (see course outline above) plus an intense 2-hour coffee art experience that involves looking at etching, fudge art and free-pouring. We have developed this course in conjunction with representatives from the coffee industry as well as representatives from educational bodies such as TAFE. 

What Master Barista is:

  • intensive and hands-on
  • jam-packed with information
  • an “experience”
  • a package integrating training and knowledge which culminates in a nationally recognised certificate
  • a package earning participants an accredited certificate that is part of SIT40313 Certificate IV in Hospitality 
  • a course conducted by some of the finest talent in the espresso industry today

What Master Barista is not:

  • a cruisy, froth-and-giggle course that merely scratches the surface on only the basics  (you will find plenty of CBD coffee school starter courses that specialise in that)

Other information:

Who the course will appeal to

This course is designed for the following people:

  • people who want an accredited certificate to help them find employment

One to Four Instructors

One to four instructors are present, depending on class size, at all courses to provide feedback to students and to oversee their operation of the espresso machine.

No “lining up” to wait for machines

We use 3 group and 2 group Italian espresso machines that have at least two groups steam wands and are designed for at least two operators. This means that everybody gets their own equipment to use and there is no sharing with anyone else in the class. Barista Basics therefore offers a level of practical experience that is unrivalled by any other coffee school.
