I did the level one course and it was so great! David was a fantastic teacher. I went from not knowing much more about coffee than it was delicious, to learning the ideal espresso recipe, the different drinks on a coffee menu, how to extract the perfect espresso, and steam the milk for all kinds of drinks. I'd highly recommend it for anyone who loves coffee or anyone who wants to become a baristaread more

I attended the Espresso Basics and Latte Art courses. Really excellent and clear instruction, and lots and lots of hands-on practice with detailed demonstration and very constructive and detailed feedback on your efforts. Nice and small maximum class size so everyone gets lots of attention, and each student had their own station with a full commercial setup to practice on and endless consumables. Would absolute recommend to anyone learning the art of coffee - while I did the basic courses I can see the more advanced ones would be really excellent, too. Thanks more

Would recommend definitely! David is expertise in the field. The training was well designed with the theory and practice. It was so good that every one was assigned for separate machine which allowed good time for practice enough. I would recommend level 1 and 2 at the same time. Would like to take another training for learning to pour the more

David is an absolutely lovely instructor who's very detailed and efficient with his teachings, easy to understand for someone with no prior coffee knowledge. His keen ears and eyes can tell when you're making a mistake on the machine which is always helpful for a beginner when you need help most.

I did the 5 day Master Barista course and it was packed with information and practice. I signed up for the course with very little knowledge and experience and I left the class with confidence. There is only so much you can learn in 5 days but David instills in you the foundation and tools in which to build on after the course. Along with the knowledge passed, you are afforded a great amount of time and resources to practice and improve your skills. I would recommend that you use that time to practice everything you would like to improve on and do not just focus on one area (unless that's all you care about). Overall, I was satisfied with the course and everything I gained from more

Signed up for espresso basic and latte art class. Within 5 hours I was able to understand the basics of making quality espresso and the mechanics of latte art. For a first timer with no knowledge, to my surprise I successfully made a descent heart shape and rosetta. This was the result of having David as an exceptional instructor who observe and guides each individual specifically with the end goal of making great tasting coffee. In summary, quality training that leaves you confident as you walk out that more

Truly recommend this school! Full 5 stars score :))) I enrolled to Master Barista Class and it was sooo amazing! Completely exceed my expectations. For those who are interested to learn about coffee, I recommend this course without any hesitation (like calling for shotgun seat). The course will guide you and prepare you to work in a cafe with confidence and no fears (keep calm and grind it!). It is the most complete package course ever, from coffee bean in a farm to coffee in a cup just in front of you! Every subject discussed are with facts and calculations which makes the coffee so approachable and easy to think about coffee. The tutor, David has a friendly persona, always very approachable, patient to rectify every “bad habbits” over and over again (also strict which is good for personal improvements and results). Try, it will not disappoint! Zillions thanks David Seng! We shall see around! “Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosey!” :)read more
