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. Totally recommend, awesome experience, wouldn't rate it any less.read more

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 it.read more

I did my basic coffee making course and latter art yesterday with David. David gave us many useful tips and suggestions to improve our posture and doing it step by step. Something highlight this school is because of the small class method gathers everyone and all of us did enjoy the course and makes everyone involved the class very well.During the course, this school also providing quality milk and quality coffee beans for training. Recommend to anyone who want to aim learn something basic and enhance their latte art skills.read more

Learnt a lot at this school! It really helped me get a good start to making beautiful Latte Art. After doing the course, I realised I had wasted a lot of time in learning incorrect techniques and wished I had done this course sooner. My trainer David guided me through the processes and corrected many of my mistakes that I had learnt over the years. He is very knowledgable and an expert in his field. - Well worth it, thank you.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

Had a great experience at the Espresso School. What David taught improved my home coffee skills so much, that even my ex-barista friend was impressed.I can't recommend the courses highly enough. Even if you don't own an espresso machine, you will walk away with a much greater understanding of what goes in to making your favourite coffee, and give you a greater appreciation for the people that make them.read more

I would recommend the course to any coffee lover who interested in learning techniques of Latte Art :)
