Plus: Barista Basics Mk1 - 3hrs

Barista Basics Mk1 - 3hrs $120.00   

Barista Basics is 3 hours in duration.

It is a 3-hour barista experience that actually teaches you how to identify all the key variables that go into making espresso-based coffee then moves on to instruct you on putting all of those variables together at speed to make excellent finished coffees.

Barista Basics has evolved over the last 10 years. What started as a “learn to froth, adjust the grind and make coffee” course has now extended well beyond that into a power session that combines cutting-edge barista techniques with expert knowledge and advice.

This course results in a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment listing the units SITHFAB005 Prepare and serve espresso coffee and SITXFSA001 Use hygienic practices for food safety.

Note Bonus: Includes Mandatory Hygiene Unit at no extra charge

Our aim is simple: to teach espresso using the national framework whilst maintaining the Italian espresso roots.

Whether you are looking for an immediate job or simply searching for espresso excellence, this course is for you. We have developed this course in conjunction with representatives from educational bodies such as TAFE.
