My hubby Prabud Lakmal did the basic coffee making course yesterday. I can see how much he enjoyed and love the course when I saw him. He couldn't stop talking about it. We had the best cup of cappuccino and latte at home. He was doing precise measures for the cup and mastering his milk frothing skills. Thank you very much David for doing a marvelous job. I'm giving you this top score by experiencing the skills and knowledge you have given him.read more
David is so pro lovely men. I wish I take my 5-days course sooner which it takes near 6 months finishing advance one. You you best David.
I enrolled for both Espresso Basics & Latte Art class. David was amazing & very passionate about coffee. The course was very well structured and I had a lot of fun during the practice session. He will point out immediately what you've done wrong and will ask you to start over again which is great! That's how you learn! I'll definitely come back for Advanced Class!
Highly recommended this course! David was fantastic and l learnt a lot. Definitely return for another class in the future.
David is informative, educated and professional in his role as an educator. I thoroughly enjoyed the content which covered many aspects of the subject in just three hours. Class sizes are small and friendly and give the opportunity for lots of questions to be asked and one on one attention if required. I highly recommend The Espresso School both for personal interest as well as hands on learning to further skills for the workforce.read 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 door.read more
Highly recommend the Espresso School. We did the basics of espresso making and came away feeling confident in our ability to make great tasting coffee and truly understanding the basic fundamentals of making good espresso. It is the perfect mix of theory and practical experience. David is an excellent teacher, very passionate and knowledgeable about his subject.

Excellent course. David is obviously passionate about good and teaching others how to make and appreciate good coffee. The course is informative, practical and motivating. Recommend it highly. We shall go back to the advance class asap. Thank you David.
If you're looking for quick, detail and welcoming course to do. 100% recommend this course to anyone out there who would like to make coffees or those who have a general interest in coffees. David is a wonderful teacher who is always there for his students right beside them giving them feed back and encourages you to do your best.
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
Thanks David for a fantastic class - Really enjoyed learning so much about coffee! Prior to this I didn't like coffee as it all tasted bitter to me - I'm now onto my second coffee and I can see many more in my future :) The class is comprehensive in information and we learnt great techniques on the machines.
This is where productivity meets passion. I had a level 1 espresso + level 2 latte art class with David Seng when I was back in Melbourne. The class was so insightful and I wish I had the time to take the Master Class back then! Give it a try, you will not regret it. Tips: if you need more time practicing (hands-on) what you learn, you'd be better off with the Master Class!
This was a great learning experience ! The course lecturer was was very approachable and his knowledge base on and around the subjects were second to none, If you are thinking about a Barista course/courses this is the one!!!These courses are more than just a tick and flick, they truly inspire you!!
David is very knowledgeable and informative, Level One Expresso Basics was great. However if you want to use these skills immediately in a work place I think it would be better to do all three levels.
David was extremely knowledgeable, and the course was definitely worth it ! Would recommend it to anyone who is interested in coffee or in becoming a Barista.
Thanks for taking Nathan under your wing today! He absolutely loved the class and wants booked into the next level class. So glad he's learning from the master!
David was an excellent instructor. He was so knowledgeable and it was fun attending his class. Never felt bored and it's actually quite fast paced with lots of hands on practice. Can't day dream for a sec as there's so much to absorb and learn. Highly recommend this place to kick start your coffee journey.
It's really good course and David is so nice, he has good knowledge about coffee, you can learn useful skills and knowledge.
Absolutely awesome, great teacher thanks David for today had heaps of fun. Great to refresh my skills, thanks for your support and for sharing your knowledge with us all. Highly recommend here for doing coffee courses.
The absolute best course to go to!! You can tell that David absolutely loves coffee and is his passion and not just his job. This comes out in the way he teaches and his ridiculous knowledge of everything about Coffee. Definitely recommend his course, he focuses on all the little details to help you make an awesome coffee every time. Can't recommend him enough!!
I would like to say "Thank you" to David . I started with nothing in the morning but you help me a lot. Very glad that i decide to apply this course with you. Anyway i'm gonna keep practice as you told me. Katie
The course was fantastic! David is super knowledgeable and friendly, the three hours seemed to vanish. The practical component was really enjoyable coupled with the theory behind the process. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to do a barista course to see David at the Espresso School. I will definitely by back for more classes.
Espresso Basics - David was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and hot on making sure we followed best practice even in basic training. Came away feeling confident and full of information. Also loved learning all about coffee as a raw product and the "why" behind everything we were taught.
This course was excellent. Invaluable practical component as well as interesting and relevant coffee background. David is a knowledgable lecturer who is very good at his job. I definitely recommend the course to anyone, home enthusiast or professional, who wants to learn more about coffee.
A fantastic experience! Absolutely blown away by the knowledge, enthusiasm, energy and delivery of David. Since first contact he went out of his way to help me out. The three hour basic course is packed full and even went overtime with David giving as much value as possible! Highly recommend taking this course to anyone with a slight interest in coffee, looking to gain work or a fun weekend activity.read more
Awesome Awesome Awesome... Done Levels 1&2 and learnt so much in the 5 hours.. David and Anthony are excellent trainers that make it simple to learn.. Thanks again.
Tracked down 'The espresso school' online and booked in for level 1 and level 2 courses! Best money spent.. David Seng (and Anthony) were great mentors and eventhough i have had years of on and off experience behind a machine i knew i was still missing a great deal of knowledge and skill. Both levels are now complete and i already feel so much more confident now as a qualified barista! Thanks again guys! Mel :) (Mio Locale)read more

I took level 1 course and made my first cup of coffee with a coffee machine. The hands-on course is very informative. David is patient to guide me through and answer every question (even after class). Plan to take next level course after I get more practice and digest what I have learnt today. Thanks David. Thanks the Espresso School.------Jiayiread more
