Frequently asked questions about the 1 day Introduction to Barista

The first practical thing to learn is 'how to pour a perfect espresso' this is the same question as 'how long is a piece of string?' It is an art form. Once this skill is mastered then milk dynamics is one of the big difference makers as you will notice burnt milk before most things in your coffee.

Most barista's are taught on the job, and if you are lucky enough to work under a great barista who has the time to take you under his wing then you can't get a better start. Of course finding the job with the perfect trainer is a bit of a mission and it is of course easier to book a Barista course to give you the right start in your coffee learning journey. There is plenty of great information on the internet but if you are not sure what you need to be studying first and you would like some practical supervised learning then a physical course is the best way.
