Barista (Intro) - Evening - 28/02/2020
28th February | 18:00 - 21:00
Whether you’re a self-confessed coffee nerd looking to take it to the next level, someone looking to obtain the skills to enter the coffee industry or an existing barista looking to take your skills to the next level, this course provides all the base level skills needed to 'sling out' great tasting, well presented, consistent espresso based drinks.
This course covers most of the content of our half-day foundation course but is slightly condensed and less in-depth, aimed to work as a shorter evening course for those who may not be able to attend daytime courses.
We will start this evening course with a complementary light snack (and of course a coffee) before we get cracking and teach you good barista practices from the very beginning, including how to properly set up the machine and grinder, how to pull a well-balanced shot of espresso, how to get that silky milk texture, some basic workflow techniques and a bit of machine maintenance, and usually a shed load more too!
These classes sizes are typically 6 max and taught in an informal way in our dedicated school area at the Afan Coffee Co HQ in Swansea. These sessions last approximately 3 hours.
You’ll leave with a complementary bag of freshly roasted, speciality Afan Coffee to explore at home and a 20% discount on any equipment or coffee you’d like to purchase at the time to enable you perfect your brews at home!
