This three day accredited City and Guilds Barista Training Course will see you learning everything there is to know about being a Barista.


Day 1:

You will learn about coffee, where it comes from and the history of its origins and migration. You will get to work on industry level coffee machines, learning the importance of making the perfect espresso, the equipment you need to be familiar with and you will then work your way through a coffee menu learning to make each drink.

A lunch will be provided before the afternoon’s practical activities.

In the afternoon, it’s all about milk texturing to add to your lovely espresso. 


Day 2:

Starting the day right, we get to make filter coffee before moving on to a theory lesson on tea, learning where it comes from and how it gets from crop to pot with a tea tasting session demonstrating the different teas on offer and their perfect brewing conditions.  This will be followed up with the “World of Chocolate”, where it comes from and how it ends up in a bar, or in your cup.
Lunch will be provided.

The afternoon kicks off with a discussion about smoothies before being let loose with some fruity ingredients and our commercial blender.

The rest of your afternoon will be spent preparing for your exams and practicing your practical assessment with help from the Barista Training Manager. 


Day 3:

Your morning will begin with tips on customer service and the expectations of a barista making drinks and maintaining high levels of customer interaction. You will also be shown how to care for the machines and equipment for a well-rounded barista experience.

A buffet lunch will be provided.

Your afternoon will be taken up by your practical assessment during which you make all 7 drinks that you have learned on the course. This is followed by a 20 question written exam based on the information you have learned on the course.

You will receive feedback and your grade of pass, merit or distinction on the same day and an official City and Guilds accredited Barista Training Certificate will be sent to you in the post soon after.
