Coffee Ninja Level 1
The Coffee Ninja Level One barista course is an informative half day introduction to the world of coffee and the skills required to set you on the road to being a top notch barista! When you leave us you will be armed with the basic skills and knowledge needed to start producing great espresso coffees (with continued practice of course!).
An introduction to barista terminology – we explain many commonly used terms and pieces of equipment that you will become accustomed to as your journey into the barista world continues.
The coffee grinding process – learning about the different types of coffee grinder available, grinder calibration and the dosing and packing process.
Extracting an espresso – learning how to achieve the perfect espresso extraction. Espresso is the base for most of your drinks in a barista’s arsenal so mastering the perfect extraction is essential.
Steaming/texturing milk – covering the full milk steaming process and how to generate silky smooth micro-foam (used in all your milk based beverages).
Latte, cappuccino & americano – learning how to make the three most commonly ordered drinks following the ‘professional beverage routine’. This draws all the skills you have learnt together as you will be grinding the coffee, extracting the espresso and steaming the milk to present the final beverages.
