Want to get a head start in the industry? Our Fast Track barista course is an intensive full day workshop that will set you up with the skills, knowledge and training so you walk out the door ready to work in the industry.
This workshop covers all the same introductory fundamentals from our Coffee Fundamentals course as well as further expanding on the techniques and skills required to become a competent barista. There are only 6 spots available in each class to ensure you receive adequate time on our commercial coffee machines, as well as feedback and guidance from our dedicated trainer.
This workshop is our hero barista course and is an incredibly entertaining and rewarding day as you are fully emerged into the wonderful world of coffee. You will not only leave with a new skillset, but also an appreciation for the industry and a greater understanding of coffee.
“Just took the 7-hour fast track course here recently, definitely recommend it for anyone hoping to learn to make a decent coffee! Small and focused class, goes on for 7 hours but is extremely interesting and engaging throughout! Taste great coffee, make great coffee!”
