Our Barista School

Purpose-built training facility

Our barista school is a purpose-built coffee training facility right next door to C4 Coffee Roasters! You’ll often find the aroma of freshly roasted coffee permeating through the school.

The Espresso School has 5 fully equipped espresso stations, a coffee brewing and coffee cupping station, a sample roasting area and a seated classroom area.

Our barista school believes in using only modern coffee brewing equipment you’d find in cafes. They are maintained to meticulous standards to ensure a high-quality training environment for our students enrolled in our barista courses. 

Our equipment is upgraded on a regular basis so you won’t find run-down dirty equipment or old-school manual dosing chambered coffee grinders in sight.
