There simply is no better way to learn the craft of preparing great coffee than on your own equipment in your own home. We can arrange a home training session on your own kit* – just drop us a line and we’ll let you know if it’s possible.

Our domestic courses are geared towards making the best coffee possible with home equipment.

For training at home we recommend you have the following;

  • a good quality espresso machine, preferrably without a pressurised basket/perfect crema device, such as a Gaggia Classic/Baby, Rancilio Silvia, Nuova SImonelli Oscar, Expobar & Rocket machines
  • a good quality electric burr grinder that is capable of grinding very finely for espresso such as an Iberital MC2, Mahlkonig Vario, Eureka Mignon, Mazzer Mini.

If you don’t have this level of equipment, contact us for more info and we’ll let you know whether a home training session is best. It may be better to come to our studio to effectively demonstrate what can be achieved with the correct equipment – you can then apply this knowledge to your home setup accordingly.


Please don’t hesitate to get in touch for any queries on courses, equipment advice or anything else coffee related.

We also offer gift vouchers** posted to your door (or any other address if it’s a secret!)

*Home training sessions depend on your location. Please contact us for details
**Gift Vouchers will be given 6 months from date of purchase. Voucher must be redeemed within that time.
