Covid19 updates: Private Classes Only
Welcome back students! We apologize for all of your missed phone calls and emails. This has been a tough time but we are finally back! After much consideration, we have decided it is safest to discontinue group classes in favor of private classes. Private classes can be for individuals, staff, or groups that know each other.
Private classes will be available for sign up by the hour. If you would like to sign up for more than one hour, you can add multiple hours as long as they are available. A 15% discount will automatically be applied if you sign up for more than one hour.
2 hours is recommended for most situations. 1 hour is useful for brushing up on specific skills or for some home baristas. 3 or 4 hours may be recommended if you are starting a coffee shop and would like to discuss aspects of the business and work on creating a menu. It may also be recommended if you would like to brush up on your staff's skills and have multiple staff cycle through.
You can read more about what you can learn in a private class below and visit the Classes page for information about how we are working to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
What you can learn in a private class:
In your private class you can focus on whatever matters to you most!
Most classes will begin with learning about the espresso equipment, the beginner's espresso technique, how to steam milk and the first steps for pouring latte art. Espresso skills include information and practice with grinding, dosing, tamping and extracting espresso. You will then learn how to steam milk to the proper temperature and consistency required to pour latte art, as well as have an opportunity to try pouring a few drinks and designs.
Your time can also be used to learn about many of the common drinks on a coffee menu, including filter coffee, cold brew coffee, espresso, americano, macchiato, cortado, cappuccino and latte.
If latte art is your priority, your instructor may help by steaming your milk so that you can focus on learning the pouring of up to 3 basic designs: heart, tulip, and rosetta. Milk steaming can be practiced in longer classes or in follow-up sessions.
If you have questions about opening a coffee shop we are likely to be able to answer many of your questions about everything from which equipment is best for you, which coffee roasters you might be interested in talking to, to questions about hiring baristas and what drinks to include on your menu.
No matter what you'd like to focus on, we have the skills and expertise to help you improve to the next step.
