barista training courses

We offer different courses that can be adapted to your setup and training requirements accordingly. If you work in the industry or own a coffee machine or grinder at home then you’re welcome to attend a training session at our studio in Glasgow. We would however always recommend training on the equipment that you will be using regularly to ensure you get the best from it and because of this we can also carry out training in your own home or at your business premises, on your own kit.
