Barista School Perth was born out of a vision to combine our love for delicious coffee with our mission to share our knowledge with as many people as possible.
For many, all around the world, drinking coffee has become a daily ritual. It connects us with our fellow coffee lovers and creates a sense of community that feels like home.
Jessie’s Café & Roasting Co is our sister café and home to our coffee community. We have been sharing our delicious coffee to our wonderful customers since September 2012.
Jessie is the devoted owner and inspiration behind Jessies Café & Roasting Co and Barista School Perth. She shares an amazing energy and love for her team and her customers, and they are the driving reason for bringing her vision to life.
The barista team at Jessie’s Café are wildly passionate about coffee and it made perfect sense to create a community where the exchange of knowledge and inspiring stories could be shared.
With an uncompromising commitment to quality, we are constantly evolving our barista courses with the most up to date knowledge in order to keep ahead of the dynamic specialty coffee industry.
We deliver the ultimate experience in seeing the process from start to finish and we encourage an interactive and participative learning environment. We believe in teaching the age-old techniques using state of the art equipment because that is what makes the difference between a good barista and one that shines.
Kali is always wearing a smile that quickly turns into an infectious laugh. She lights up the Café and the BSP training room with her aura and energy. After years of experience in the coffee industry and having a knack for training new staff it was only fitting she put on her teaching hat and joined our selected team of barista trainers. She has had the opportunity to work in a wide range of speciality coffee shops enabling her to keep up with the latest trends and fads that have developed in the Perth coffee scene and lucky for us, she is willing to share all.Coffee of choice: Long black
