I’ve been making coffee for over 10 years now and I’ve been learning from all sorts of different people in the industry.

I’ve trained with 8 different companies and they all give different opinions on how to make great coffee. But they are all consistent in that they say – their way is the best way.

“The right way to make coffee is how the boss tells you to. This is why I teach this course so that it is adaptable to any situation.”

With all this experience I’ve been able to design a course that teaches the most valuable lessons I’ve learned as a barista. It’s my pleasure to pass this knowledge onto you so that you don’t have to spend 10 years of your life learning it the hard way.

This course teaches you the essential core principles of making amazing coffee in a way that allows you to be flexible – the ultimate advantage.

Every cafe has their way of making coffee, and when you start working as a barista you will need to be able to adapt to their principles. You need to be flexible, and that’s what I will teach you in this course. Once you become flexibility you’ll:


Get a competitive advantage on your CV.
