The full barista training consists of 3 half-days of hands-on coffee practice: the introduction to coffee & Cupping, espresso techniques and the essentials of latte art.
This course is in Dutch.
Day 1: Introduction to Coffee and Cupping
During the introduction course we will talk about the differences between coffee origins and varieties, process methodes, roasting and more. After this afternoon you will have a basic understanding about single origins, specialty coffee and what brings quality to coffee.
We finish the course with a cupping (coffee tasting).

We start the training with finding the right grinder settings and maintaining the espresso machine. We will also focus on evaluating an espresso on taste and flavour.
Day 3: Milk techniques
