I had a great time doing Latte Art with David. He taught me a lot about coffee.

If you want to learn about coffee from someone who understands it & is a good, approachable teacher then you should really give his classes a try. Thanks David

The coffee-making class was a birthday gift to my husband and both of us highly enjoyed the class. David is an excellent teacher.

My husband and I are both coffee-lovers and this class has helped us make better coffee at home. I cannot recommend this class enough! Thank you.

Absolutely phenomenal delivery and class vibes at the espresso school. David was an exceptional teacher to learn from.

His attention to detail showed taking the time to consistently coach each student individually through the steps needed to produce an awesome cup of coffee.

David was a great teacher. The course was very relaxed and hands on. We were able to go from almost zero knowledge to making a great coffee by the end of the 3 hours.

It was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it.

This is a high-paced, no-nonsense, hands-on course to get you from no experience to being able to competently pull shots consistently, and steam and pour milk to create a wide range of the popular beverages.

I have been unhappy with getting the milk right for years and in one short class I'm nailing it!

Really great course. I did the Level 1 Barista course and came away making much better coffees than when I went in!

David really knew his stuff and was able to explain in a way that made sense and could be put into practice immediately.

If you're serious about coffee, the Master Barista course is a brilliant way to kick start that immersion! David knows his stuff, and has that rare ability to tailor learning to each person in a group as the training unfolds. Up-to-date, packed with fascinating info, and lots of 'time on the tools' making coffees, the five day course is intense, engaging and great fun. Highly recommended!!
