Barista Training

What is a barista training course? These are courses to understand all the drinks that can be made from your barista machine, and making them to the highest ability and quality possible.
- Coffee – Tea – Chocolate – Iced beverages.

Our in house barista is professionally trained with over 7 years experience. With training provided by the London School Of Coffee you can be assured he can confidently answer any worries or questions you may have, and point you in the right direction.

Our barista training is informal, relaxed and friendly you will not find a rigorous training structure here. You can ask questions and at any time during the course and we can adjust to your requirements as you are moving along, such as if you want to spend longer on one subject than others or need additional recaps.
