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.
Station 1 is comprised of a Nuova Simonelli Aurelia II T3 semi-automatic (competition specification) two-group espresso machine, Mahlkönig K30 automatic flat burr grinder and milk jug rinser. This is our go-to machine to train pro baristas for competition.
Stations 2, 3 and 4 feature identical Expobar two-group volumetric machines with an A.C.E. ShureShot digital timer for easy monitoring of extraction times. Paired with each machine is an automatic conical burr Mazzer Kony-E grinder and milk jug rinser.
Similar to Station 1, Station 5 comes equipped with a Nuova Simonelli Aurelia II TFT volumetric two-group espresso machine. Paired with the Aurelia II is a fully automatic Compak E8 flat burr grinder, and milk jug rinser.
Additional to each espresso machine station is:
- 2x Brewista Smart Scale version II for measuring doses and espresso yields
- Australian made Pullman Espresso tamper
- precision nano-quartz filter baskets thanks to E&B Lab
- precision 200-micron shower screens fitted to each machine by IMS Filtri
- high-quality ceramics from Cup&Company
