Barista Basics in the Bronx
Begin building a strong foundation with this class taught by Justin Mcmillan at the beloved Bronx neighborhood cafe, The Boogie Down Grind! You'll learn all about the espresso equipment, the beginner's espresso technique, milk steaming and pouring latte art. All of this while feeling out what it's like to be behind the counter at a real (but closed on Sundays) cafe!
You couldn't ask for a better instructor for learning latte art, either! Justin regularly competes and makes some of the prettiest latte art you'll see! Latte art skills may arguably be the most defining example of a barista’s capability and students of latte art naturally learn to care about espresso and the overall quality of coffee.
This class is for anyone at the beginner level. Common reasons you might attend this class:
-You want to learn for fun
-You have a home machine but have no idea how to use it
-You have a home machine and you want to be better at latte art
-You want to look for barista work
-You want to open a cafe but want to do their research first
But you also don't need any reason or experience to join!
