Head barista trainer

Hi! My name is David and I want to welcome you to The Espresso School. I started this coffee school in 2009 when I realised there was a distinct lack of specialty coffee training in Melbourne, Australia. My vision was to create a space where I could not only share my passion about coffee with likeminded people but to teach students the latest barista and coffee making techniques as they emerged.

What makes us unique is the direct link between our barista courses and current barista practices used in the coffee industry and cafes today. Our classes are some of the most progressive in the coffee industry, and we are always constantly evolving and changing our barista course content so that we teach the most relevant and up to date techniques being used by baristas in Australia and around the world.

The Espresso School’s barista training facilities are fully equipped with the latest coffee equipment to ensure a quality training environment. We offer barista training with a difference; we are uncompromising in our commitment to quality training so you can become a technically proficient and theoretically sound barista in small and interactive classes.
