Learn the essential barista skills required to get you started on your barista career. This one day course focuses on the key skills required to set your grinder, make espresso, and foam and texture milk for cappuccinos. The course also touches on some basic information on the daily care of your equipment.


This session is ideally suited to people new to the coffee industry or those looking to gain an insight into the broad subject matter of Barista Skills. No previous barista experience is required. The course provides you with the key information to enable you to sit your Barista Skills Foundation certification that consists of 3 short practical tests and a written exam (15 questions with a pass rate of 60% required). Successful students will be awarded 5 points towards the SCA Coffee Skills Diploma.


During the course, you will have a chance to work in our purpose built coffee lab using the much loved La Marzocco Linea PB espresso machine. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.


This course is for a maximum of 6 people and the cost does include VAT but does not cover the certification fee as this is dependent on your SCAE membership.
