Contract Training

With over 14 years experience training baristas and cafe owners, our services extend to anyone looking to further develop their coffee program.

Are you a cafe that wants an independent training program to bring out the best in your coffee and equipment? We can come to your cafe on a singular or regular basis to do training and troubleshoot based on your concerns or needs. We can also create systems to improve quality, efficiency and turnover.

Please fill out the form below if you would like more information.


Private Classes

We offer customised private classes for individuals and larger groups. These classes can be tailored to suit individuals looking for one on one training or for larger groups looking for an interactive and educational experience that builds morale within a team. Group classes could range from in-depth coffee tastings to latte art and home brewing courses.

Do you have a home/office espresso setup and are struggling to get decent results? We can come to you for a private training session to bring out the best in your equipment. We will calibrate and check your equipment and provide one on one training in the comfort of your own home.

Please get in touch through the form below and we would love to discuss the various options we have.
