BOOK A COFFEE TRAINING SESSION WITH OUR EXPERTS

For some, waking up to a hot cup of freshly brewed coffee is the best way to start the day. From the smell of the ground beans to the final drip of frothed milk, coffee making is often left to the pros for a reason. But they only got there with the help of experience, and of course, a coffee training course. Would you like to learn how to make your own cup of coffee perfection? Our coffee-making workshop will help you level up your skills.

Learn from the coffee experts

Learning how to make barista coffee at home is possible. Still, it could take tedious amounts of time to perfect, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the fundamentals of brewing your beans and frothing your milk at the perfect temperature. This is why we recommend you take our coffee workshop, where you can learn how to properly dose, brew and pour the perfect cup from the coffee connoisseurs at The Coffee Commune. Plus, you’ll learn the technicalities that come with ensuring you grind the beans correctly and don’t burn your milk — two factors that can spoil your brew. This course is helpful if you’re considering entering the coffee industry or want to open a cafe.

Our coffee training sessions includes a comprehensive approach to brewing and the ins and outs of coffee technology — from the breakdown of complex coffee machines to the science behind coffee roasting and how you can perfect each drip with pouring techniques and grinder adjustments. We offer several coffee workshops from our introductory course to intermediate and even intimate, one-on-one lessons for those who wish to hone in on their skills. Our workshops include eBooks, handouts, demonstrations, coffee tasting (of course!), and you’ll end with a certificate of completion.

So, what are you waiting for? Book now and take part in our coffee making workshops where you can become a professional barista and immediately put your newfound skills to the test. For more information, contact our team today — we’d be more than happy to help with whatever queries you may have.
