I did the level one course and it was so great! David was a fantastic teacher. I went from not knowing much more about coffee than it was delicious, to learning the ideal espresso recipe, the different drinks on a coffee menu, how to extract the perfect espresso, and steam the milk for all kinds of drinks. I'd highly recommend it for anyone who loves coffee or anyone who wants to become a baristaread more

I attended the Espresso Basics and Latte Art courses. Really excellent and clear instruction, and lots and lots of hands-on practice with detailed demonstration and very constructive and detailed feedback on your efforts. Nice and small maximum class size so everyone gets lots of attention, and each student had their own station with a full commercial setup to practice on and endless consumables. Would absolute recommend to anyone learning the art of coffee - while I did the basic courses I can see the more advanced ones would be really excellent, too. Thanks David.read more

Would recommend definitely! David is expertise in the field. The training was well designed with the theory and practice. It was so good that every one was assigned for separate machine which allowed good time for practice enough. I would recommend level 1 and 2 at the same time. Would like to take another training for learning to pour the milk.read more

I did the 5 day Master Barista course and it was packed with information and practice. I signed up for the course with very little knowledge and experience and I left the class with confidence. There is only so much you can learn in 5 days but David instills in you the foundation and tools in which to build on after the course. Along with the knowledge passed, you are afforded a great amount of time and resources to practice and improve your skills. I would recommend that you use that time to practice everything you would like to improve on and do not just focus on one area (unless that's all you care about). Overall, I was satisfied with the course and everything I gained from it.read more

Learnt a lot at this school! It really helped me get a good start to making beautiful Latte Art. After doing the course, I realised I had wasted a lot of time in learning incorrect techniques and wished I had done this course sooner. My trainer David guided me through the processes and corrected many of my mistakes that I had learnt over the years. He is very knowledgable and an expert in his field. - Well worth it, thank you.read more
