This 3-hour barista course by Six of One Coffee Roasters is designed to teach coffee enthusiasts to make better coffee at home.

The course covers everything from the journey of specialty coffee, choosing which coffee to buy and storing it properly to understanding coffee extraction. Correct dosing, tamping, and making grinder adjustments are also included in the course.

At the end of the session, expect that you will learn how to prepare black coffee, like espresso and long black, and white coffees like flat white and cappuccino. The course will also introduce you to basic latte art and how to properly texturise milk.

And of course, no fundamental barista course is complete without learning how to care for your equipment — the folks at Six of One will also teach you basic espresso machine and grinder maintenance. Classes run monthly with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 participants at a time.

When I visited Six of One, the atmosphere was great (such a fun place to do a coffee training course)… and so was my cappuccino!
