This class extends on the knowledge acquired in the ‘introduction to espresso’ course, covering dosing techniques, tamping, grinder adjustment and milk texturing.

Participants will also put the full espresso menu under the microscope and delve into the ins and outs of working in a commercial espresso bar and brewing the perfect cup of specialty coffee.

All students will receive a Certificate of Attendance — Level two from Tim Adams Specialty Coffee.

While it is not essential to complete all three classes, we recommend participants do so to gain a well-rounded knowledge of what it takes to be a barista. To find out more about the classes on offer or to make a booking, please contact us.
