Classes are limited to 8 students so there is a good student-instructor ratio. This training workshop will give you the basics for working in a coffee shop or espresso bar as well as advanced skills including lots of hands-on time at the espresso bar and machine and working with alternate brewing methods. A few steps above our Professional Barista class, this 2 day 'Ultimate Barista Training Workshop' is essential for all owners of a coffee shop business or anyone wanting to work as a professional barista. Whether you are just getting into the industry or are needing to become more hands-on in your own shop, this workshop is for you. With my experience and our interaction, you will leave my workshop and possess the skills you will need to work as a professional barista.
