Have we got NEWS for you!! You can now combine a day in the mountains with a fun Barista course!
Many years and many requests later we have FINALLY decided to offer a Barista course here at the Roastery. We are super excited to start teaching you all we know about coffee and all you need to know about coffee. Our goal is for you to walk out of the course and shine with all the interesting coffee facts you've learned, to be able to impress your work colleagues with a perfect Cappuccino and to have fun and just indulge yourself in coffee for a while.
For 2.5h Sophia will entertain, teach, show and inspire you to make delicious coffee. She has chosen to do this course very hands on which means; "less power point - more smelling, tasting, feeling, testing, failing and trying again". The course starts off with a classic coffee tasting/cupping session where we see, smell and taste the difference between arabica beans and robusta beans. Then we move on to the espresso machines and after a general introduction to the machine (how to clean and maintain) Sophia will show the basic tips and tricks in grinding, tamping, extracting and foaming milk perfectly. And after this the machines are all yours to test and learn on. In other words, learning by doing and getting those valuable inputs to help you get started. The success rate is high after 2.5h and we can almost guarantee that you will at least be able to do some kind of abstract latte art at the end of this course.
COURSE CONTENT: A beginners course for Coffee Enthusiasts and/or Gastro professionals or who want to enhance their coffee making skills and knowledge. This course introduces you to the world of coffee with interesting facts, a coffee tasting and a hands on introduction to the Espresso machine with basic latte art training.
