Barista Courses – The Benefits To Your Business

Our barista courses are tailored specifically to your business. We can train small groups of staff, giving them the skills and knowledge that will help your business to thrive.

Properly trained baristas mean you can create a competitive and successful coffee business by:

Offering an impressive drinks menu your baristas will learn about the art of making latte, espresso, macchiato, cappuccino, flat white, layered drinks and more.

The Perfect CoffeeThis means you can:
Offer a menu that’s packed full of choice for your customers, giving you the edge over your competitors. Ensure consistent quality – our barista training ensures all your staff can produce delicious, high quality coffee.

They’ll also learn about factors that can change how coffee needs to be made, such as humidity levels within your building.

This ensures your customers get a great cup of coffee every time they visit, making your establishment synonymous with quality.

Securing repeat custom – our barista training course is a great way to help you get the best out of your coffee. This can help to secure a loyal customerbase and a solid, predictable income. Making the most of your investment – if you invest in high quality coffee beans, it makes sense to ensure you get the best out of them. Our training ensures your staff can do just that.

Barista Course And Manual – What’s Included?
Your barista course will be delivered to a small group of staff, who will be trained to a high level. Armed with a wealth of new knowledge and our barista training manual, they can then pass on their new skills to any other members of your team.

During the training course, they’ll learn about:

  • The correct way of grinding, dosing and tamping coffee
  • How to make a variety of different drinks perfectly
  • Steaming, heating, foaming and micro foaming milk
  • Espresso machine health and safety issues
  • Adjusting the coffee making process for high humidity levels
  • Cleaning the machine
  • Setting up the machine

  • Further Barista Training:
    Barista training is available as standard when you first buy or rent an espresso machine from Coffee 1652. However, you can also access our barista courses on request.

    In conjunction with our coffee partner, Kimbo UK, we are also able to offer the opportunity to qualify for a professional NVQ certificate.
