For anyone interested in drinking coffee, having fun and gaining some barista skills, our Barista Basics workshop is the class for you! Students will cover all topics related to operating an espresso machine and making espresso-based drinks, including:
- Dialing in a grinder
- Pulling a shot of espresso
- Steaming milk
- Pouring latte art
- Cleaning and maintaining equipment
The class will begin with an overview of espresso extraction, exploring the factors and variables that affect flavor. Students will learn the proper technique to dial in espresso and produce a delicious, balanced shot. Once we’ve found that ideal shot, the class will cover the science of steaming milk, discussing how we transform milk into a smooth, velvety latte texture, and how to pour latte art. By the end of the class, you should be able to put all these skills together to make a great cup of coffee.
The Barista Basics course is a 2.5 hour class. All materials are included and students are welcome to take photos and write down notes throughout the class. We also provide a 10% discount on all professional brewing equipment for Barista Basics participants.
