So, so good. Andre was lovely. The class was light and fun with lots of support. It was so informative and great for barista skills. My 15 year old son and I did it and his feedback was all positive. Highly recommend.

Nathaniel Santillan Sep 2023

Andre was a very good teacher and provided practical tips and also made the theoretical parts interesting. The course itself is well worth it since you get hours of hands-on practice with the machines and as much coffee and milk as you want for practice.

Luna (Xiaotong) Jia Sep 2023

Joel is our teacher and he's been really great thru the session. We have learned many interesting history and science behind coffee and coffee making. The session has been well strcutured - from making shot to forming milk, from understanding all kinds of coffee beverage to making latte art - it has been great 5 hours for our team.

Carolina Arciniegas Sep 2023

He was very good and explain all very well, i really like the class he have a good actitude.

Mini Gandhi Aug 2023

This barista course was one of the best thing I have tried in Sydney. It was a wonderful experience. The tutor was welcoming and was lovely to chat with. He made the entire experience unique. Every detail was very well explained plus learning to make all kinds of coffee was a charm. The tutor was supportive and very encouraging. I got to learn the art of making the best coffee. The chance we got use the machines, actually brew coffee was what made this class worth it.
Immensely happy with this experience.

Fantastic class. The teacher was really friendly and conversational, explained the techniques for espresso extraction, milk texturing and pouring clearly. Super humble and could articulately explain and show a failed coffee as well as a good one.

The class went for 5 hours with only 4 students, each with their own coffee machine, allowing great one-on-one time with the teacher. There was plenty of milk and coffee grounds to practice with, and honestly couldn’t of asked for more!

Clarence Chau Jul 2023

Joel was amazing what can I say.
He has insane experience and was really helpful in helping me identify ways to improve my latte art journey would recommend!

A great introductory course to coffee making and barista skills. This course is non-accredited, however it still went for 5 hours. This allowed Joel, the presenter to give an overview of the history and origins of coffee before diving in to making coffee.

There were 8 participants and we each had a machine and Joel was able to get around to all of us. We practiced different styles including Long black, machiato, latte, cappuccino, flat white, and piccolo. We also had time to try some coffee art, but this takes time to master.

It is a fun course and informative course, and if you don't need to spend extra money to be accredited and want an activity to do on your own or with a group of friends, this could be the course for you. It is also a good course to do if you need a refresher.

Would very much recommend to anyone passionate about coffee

Elizabeth Jones Jun 2023

Joel did a great job catering for the different reasons people were there. Some, like myself, just there for interest & to make a better coffee at home & some looking to get a job as a Barista.
Was a good mix of where the coffee comes from & it's history to the roasting process & then details of what all the many different coffees are & how to make them.

Learnt a lot about what I need to do to get a better coffee from my machine at home.
I was in a class of 9 and we all got our own machine to work with. We went through a lot of coffee & milk - but there was no limit placed on how much we could use.

The book that we all got given has some great information in it & it meant that we could just focus on trying things out without having to take notes as well. Great photos for future reference too.

I had a great time in this class. The minute I walked in the class room, I felt a nice ambience with good vibes. The size of the class was 9 which was the right size so that the teacher could give more coaching for each one of us.

Thanks to the the knowledge and experience of the teacher Sam, the class was full of fun and I learned a lot of stuff from our hands-on practice under his guidance.

In the class, Sam taught us theories and gave us more time to explore in our own way.
He was patient with such a novice like me and was ready to help anyone else in the class.

In terms Latte Art, I think everyone in that class still felt it a challenge, Of course it is an Art and is not suppose to be an easy project without hard work at the back.

if you take a closer look at this type of art, every cup of coffee made tells something about that barista, about his passion, love and his unseen talent.

Thank you Coffee School for sending Sam from Melbourne who brought big smile on us and made this experience memorable.

It was a great time. Loving barista with a un limited sence of humour. I loved spending time in this course and I've got enough information and techniques in making coffee. Thanks alot for caring about ur workshop and appreciating the trainers.

I had the opportunity to participate in this class, and I must say that I am extremely happy about it. Sam, our teacher, has been absolutely fantastic. Being the only boy in the class, he teased me quite a bit, but it was all in good fun. His knowledge and expertise in the subject matter are truly impressive.

One of the remarkable aspects of the class was that no one was left behind. We all learned the fundamentals of coffee and milk brewing. By the end of the course, each of us could pull off a perfect espresso shot and brew the milk correctly.

For a first introduction, we briefly covered the subject of latte art (hence the formless heart in my latte ahah), and I believe that was appropriate. It's important to first master the basics before delving into the finer details.

Sam's teaching went beyond simply operating the coffee machine. He also emphasized the importance of a barista's role and taught us how to engage potential customers. The class had an abundance of coffee machines for everyone to practice on.

I took a similar course with TAFE NSW and I must admit that the experience was quite disappointing. On the other hand, this particular course was worth every cent I paid. I wholeheartedly and without any doubt recommend it to anyone interested in the world of coffee making. Whether seeking a fun hobby or pursuing a career in this field, this course is the perfect choice.

We didn't get provided with an apron, so if you think you'll need one, be sure to bring your own.

Very good trainer and shared lot of information about coffee and how it could be done really good

Amanda Englund May 2023

Joel was fantastic. So knowledgeable but also positive and supportive. The venue was great with everyone having their own coffee machine. We went through so much coffee and milk to keep practicing making the different coffees but after so many hours - the practice really did help with increasing skill and confidence. I still didn't nail the latte art at the end but most people did. Really happy I can make my own cappuccino now. Definitely worth it. Just don't park in Holt St carpark without pre booking - cost me nearly $90

Jayamaria Shrestha May 2023

The teacher was so patient, kind and smiley all the way through and was always open for questions. When it came to putting everything in to practice, you could try however many times you wanted to. He gave us detailed and easy to understand instructions and demonstrated everything too. We also got to learn something from every aspect of coffee, so it was very well-rounded. For the price, the amount of time and experience I highly recommend this class. :) Thank you again!

Tanay Shukla May 2023

The teacher was the loveliest person I have ever met. He was passionate about the course he was teaching and made sure every student got individual and personalised attention. The up and go attitude of the instructor was my highlight of the day and I would definitely recommend attending his class to everyone.

The venue was very well organised and had everything necessary for learning the art. I was happy and satisfied with the materials provided.

The experience was worth the value of money and I ended up learning a lot of things today and went back with greater knowledge about the art.

Professional 5 hour class geared for newbie baristas and coffee enthusiasts. Joel is a fantastic, passionate and knowledgeable teacher. We covered everything from beans, to getting the correct grind, creating the perfect shot to milk, art and every type of brew that is sold throughout coffee shops today. I loved this class and learned so much. I came home smelling like coffee and wanting to bounce out of bed to recreate a perfect cup on my machine. Now I have the smarts, I know where I am going wrong, so off now to buy myself a good grinder. And loads more practice.

Jonny Lewis Apr 2023

Joel was an awesome teacher and very friendly. Taught us many useful tricks and learned a lot.

Teacher was very helpful, answered every question, gave few useful tips.
I would be happier if there were different sizes of jugs and different kind of milk (plant ones) as their use is slightly different.
Venue was ok.

Joanna Bitar Sep 2022

This was an awesome course for me and my 2 teenage daughters. The teacher made everything very practical. We had our own coffee machines to practice on and went away with a lot of knowledge and skills. It will definitely help my daughters get a job and for me - I now know how to make a proper long black and slowly pour my froth over the crema in an espresso for a latte! Highly recommend whether you want to be a paid barista or just learn how to make one.

Toby Futeran Sep 2022

I think it was quite well made, and the teacher was energetic and helpful to me.

Joshua Nichols Sep 2022

Joel was incredibly insightful, always lending a helping hand and getting across information in a matter that was kind natured and easy to understand

Prajna Bhat Aug 2022

It was a very good course to understand the basics, especially if you are new to the Barista scene and want to get into coffee making. This gives a good place to start.

Lauren Hayes Jul 2022

My sincere thanks to Sam! Sam is an excellent teacher and exudes enthusiasm, giving excellent training so as a student I finished the day with a lot more knowledge, understanding and skills than I would have ever expected after just a few hours! I’m now sure my love of coffee is taking me far beyond and on a journey. Confident to start a business!

Farlyk Rodriguez Jul 2022

I loved this experience, the teacher knows how to explain very well and we learned a lot in just 5 hours. Highly recommended, the only thing to improve is the delivery of the certificates because it has not yet arrived.
