To work as a barista, we recommend that you complete the Fast Track barista course. This course covers the basics including origins of coffee and the roasting process, while also covering the milk texturing process, espresso brewing and grinder adjustment, and finally covering the skills and strategies needed for working in a busy café environment.

If you want to give yourself the edge with perspective employers and improve your coffee making ability, you may like to compliment this class with our Latte Art workshop (please note the Fast Track or Coffee Fundamentals is a pre-requisite to the Latte Art workshop if you have no prior coffee industry experience).

A certificate of completion will be issued for all participants completing any of our Barista School Perth courses, and will be handed to you at the end of class.

If the Coffee Fundamentals course and the Latte Art workshop are being held on the same day, then this combination would be possible, pending availability. Our Fast Track barista course is run over a full day, so must be completed on its own.

This depends on how good you are at making coffee! We don’t offer job placements, but good baristas are always in demand worldwide. Like any new skill, practice makes perfect.

We recommend that anyone looking to work in the industry completes both the Fast Track barista course, followed by the Latte Art workshop.

We have thought about it and decided against it. A registered training organisation requires that you be taught by a qualified teacher. We think that you should be taught to make coffee by an experienced BARISTA. Our Barista’s are passionate and experienced coffee lovers. In fact, we would go as far as to say they are a little obsessed with coffee. The result is classes taught by those in the know!
