Our barista school

Our barista school is housed in a warehouse adjacent 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 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. You won’t find run down dirty equipment or an old-school manual dosing chambered coffee grinder in sight.
