Gift Vouchers

It’s the 1st of December – can you really afford to wait much longer before starting your Christmas shopping? We started this weekend and it was fairly painless, although we did have to go into a shopping centre. That’s only going to get less and less fun the closer we get to the big day…

We’ve an easy solution for your coffee loving friends & family members. How about a professional barista skills class using the best commercial espresso machines and grinders, and tastiest coffee in town? It’s a win-win. You hand over the voucher on Christmas Day, they get in touch with us within 6 months and arrange a date to attend. Easy peasy!

We have a few options available now;

One-to-one Training (Edinburgh and Glasgow venues)

Generally our courses are booked individually and training is on a one-to-one basis. This is the most common option for someone looking to learn about coffee. It provides the most value for money as the duration is focused solely on your skills. You learn more in a shorter period of time. Great!

Courses available are;

  • Basic Barista Training (£120 per person)
  • Basic Barista Training including an introduction to Latte Art (£150 per person)
  • Latte Art Masterclass (only for those who are already familiar with espresso, steaming & pouring milk) (£100 per person)

Group Sessions (Edinburgh venue only)

We work closely with the folks at Machina Espresso & have organised a few barista skills classes in their new cafe in Tollcross, Edinburgh across December and Janury. These sessions are aimed at home baristas looking to get a more in-depth look at the processes behind grinders, machines, pulling shots and steaming milk. The sessions are open to 8 people max and we’re running the Espresso Techniques class over two dates in December and January (you can read more info on this HERE).

The group sessions are a bit more wallet friendly, and can be attended as part of a series of courses. In January we’ll be adding Milk to the course list, followed by Latte Art – so if you attend all three you’ll be pulling juicy shots of espresso and topping them with silky stretched rosettas – wow!

We’ll have a mixture of gift vouchers available to pickup in Machina Espresso shortly, but you can order them by popping a short email to, stating;

  • Which course you’d like to buy a voucher for
  • The recipients name
  • The course date if you’re buying a voucher for a specific Edinburgh evening session)

We’ll then confirm these dates and supply payment information (bank transfer or Paypal) and post the voucher out to you the next day – easy!

As always, if you have any questions, do get in touch.

Enjoy your coffee!
