Barista Training

Barista training courses West Midlands / Worcestershire - learn how to make beautiful coffee

Whether you are new to the coffee world, setting up a new coffee shop or just generally want to improve your barista skills, we have tailored barista courses to suit your needs. So often people underestimate how much goes into creating the perfect coffee and on occasion the barista training is left right until the last minute which can be very stressful.

As there is so much to learn about coffee we feel very strongly that it's best to offer tailored courses to small groups of people to ensure that you really get the best out of the training.
