Basic Barista Course

At Dimattina Coffee we believe in teaching up-to-date techniques relevant to both new baristas and those needing to brush up their skills. This three hour workshop has a strong emphasis on espresso preparation and the development of consistent house-blend recipes; the course is focussed towards achieving good espresso flavour balance and furthering time management skills. Our core training covers: understanding roasted coffee, extraction of espresso, milk texturing and pouring methods, industry standard beverage styles and machine and grinder cleaning.

Domestic Barista Course

Espresso coffee is not limited to what we drink in cafes. Many people purchase high quality espresso equipment for home or office use and need some guidance in producing a great cup. The domestic course is a simplified, more condensed version of the Barista Basics course aimed at supporting those who don’t have a hospitality background.

Duration: 1.5 hours
