Being a well versed barista takes a lot of practice, but building a strong foundation in the basic skills you need will help make the learning curve less steep and have you mastering a busy rush hour behind the bar in no time! Barista Fundamentals is a 2-day workshop that covers 5 segments:

– Coffee History & Processing (including an introduction to cupping)
– Espresso
– Milk Science & Latte Art
– Extraction Science (including an introduction to hand brewing)
– Cafe Drinks & Workflow

Students will have plenty of hands on time on the machines dialing in different coffees as espresso, steaming milk, and making lots of drinks.

Although this class is a focus on the foundations, students will leave feeling proficient and comfortable working behind the bar at a busy cafe. We’ll have a practical “exam” at the end of the course for students to see how far they’ve come in just 2 days, and in what areas they need to focus on going forward.

Before taking the Royal Coffee New York barista class, we had no idea how to talk about espresso or espresso-based drinks. Now we can have intelligent conversations about where and how we want to develop the brewing side of our roasting business.
