Coffee Trainings

Our NAIL THE BASICS coffee training covers the bona fide skills you need to work as a barista and MAKE A GOOD COFFEE. Small classes, low key vibes and sweet skills. It's all you need.

We train to be work ready – there are many “certificate” trainings available, but we find any staff that have attended these trainings aren’t being trained in the technical aspects needed to operate a machine and make a beautiful, drinkable coffee.
We aim to fill that gap.

You’ll walk away from the class with an understanding of coffee roasting and grinding, shot extraction, milk texturing and pouring/latte art. That being said, you may need more than one class – some people can pickup coffee instantly, some people take a little more time.

Our coffee trainings will be tailored to each students' skill set and areas they’d like to develop. Prior to the class we will send through a quick survey to check where you’re at with skills and knowledge, and which areas you’d like to focus on.

Price is $140 per person, 2 people per class to 2 trainers to ensure you get hands on time on the machine to get the most out of the time.
The classes run for 2 hours on Friday nights, 5-7pm or 6-8pm, whichever works best for you.

We look forward to teaching you the art of coffee!!
