Bean Culture is a boutique coffee roasting company in Canberra, Australia. We specialise in corporate coffee events and working with local cafes.

It’s no secret that Australia has a long-standing love affair with coffee. No longer is coffee simply a drink, it’s a culture, a religion, something akin to divinity. We worship the humble coffee bean and its hallowed grounds. At Bean Culture, we think of our roastery as a place of worship and our baristas as our leaders, authorised to perform the sacred rituals of our faith: grinding, roasting, extracting, frothing and pouring.

At Bean Culture we are passionate about all things coffee and we want to share this passion with as many people as possible. The art of coffee is not something that can be picked up overnight. It takes passion, knowledge, and practice, but with enough dedication and the right guidance, you too can master the art of the perfect brew.

We offer barista training Canberra locals can trust. Based in Mitchell, Canberra, Bean Culture is the first roastery to boast an open space coffee roastery and professional barista training. From bean roasting beginner to latte art extraordinaire, our training courses are specially designed to give you the knowledge, passion and skills you need to succeed. We cater to all levels of experience and tailor each class to each group. You can learn more about the history and culture of coffee, while mastering a range of techniques, including coffee machine operation, cleaning and maintenance of equipment, milk texturing, bean roasting and grinding, espresso preparation and presentation.

Derek James Nov 2023

Really pleased with what was taught in the 2 hour session. Learning how to develop and stick to a coffee recipe, guidance on texturing milk and then trying my hand at latte art, all while getting lots of hands-on time using professional equipment was a really enjoyable experience.

Jamie Ericson Aug 2023

This was such a great class. We did it for something fun and different to do, but it has given me a whole new respect for baristas and the science and precision behind good coffee. The instructor and venue were both great. Would highly recommend.

Sarah Hope Jun 2023

The experience was great! Everything that we learnt was very interesting and informative. Loved steaming and making the milk/art. Sad that we didn't get to try it. Had tons of fun.

Good nice place. Worried it wouldn’t be good for baristas but it really is

Neroli Scott Apr 2023

Teacher was very informative with background knowledge on beans before they are roasted. He explained everything clearly and made sure everyone was doing the different techniques correctly. Venue was set up nicely with all the equipment accessible. Thanks.

Jan Schurmann Mar 2023

Class very well presented, good sized class and as we just wanted to do home coffee making was great class with all participants doing the same. Highly recommend the course

Lauren Zaja Feb 2023

The course today was terrific. All of my questions were answered and shown. Great venue - love that we learned n a dedicated space in a working cafe

Learning from a man who is passionate about his coffee, incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly made the hours pass very quickly.

Having a small group meant nothing was forgotten.

Loved it! (Even if I will continue to draw stick flowers when trying to do latte art!)

Isaac Churchill Oct 2022

What a great class and a great tutor.
Z (he pronounced his name as that, but I dare say it's spelt in a longer way) was personable, patient and a what a pleasure to be a student in his class.
Fantastic coffee machines to learn on.

Isabella Watts Sep 2022

I did the introduction course with Amzah. I have no barista experience and found the course perfect. I learnt a lot. It’s a very detailed course but also easy to understand. I learnt how to use a grinder, make latte art, different coffee recipes and much more. Highly recommend!

Marcus Kauffman Aug 2022

I enjoyed using the barista machine and frothing milk and creating flower swirls and techniques

Madilyn Gavin Jul 2022

Harmish (I can’t quite remember his name) was fantastic! He explained everything extremely well and was very patient. This course is value for money and I would definitely recommend this to anyone I know wanting to learn basics for making coffee

Graham Stitz Aug 2021

Great! Enjoyed learning about the why’s rather than just ’do it my way’. Personable, patient and knew his stuff, always ready with an explanation and encouraging of my attempts at latte art. Many helpful hints. Fantastic!

Emma Sheather Jul 2021

Very personable and encouraging teacher. Would have been good to have some typed notes provided to help with retention of information. My daughter really enjoyed the experience, as did I.

Winona Weir Jun 2021

I was lucky enough to have a one on one lesson at Bean Coulture. Was shown the coffee machine, how to use it and clean it, and how to do the milk. Was a really good course and learnt a lot about coffee. Justin certainly had the knowledge and made it easy to learn how to brew. Highly recommended.

Olivia Ferrer Feb 2021

Really informative and was catered to our experience level. Even helped fix our grinder saving us from replacing it

Toby Clarke Sep 2020

Toby felt very comfortable and enjoyed the class so much. Her teacher and the environment was fantastic. Would recommend this course for anyone who is interested in making a great coffee or a job in the industry.

Benjamin Macdonald Jul 2020

When I started I was alittle confused. The booking was strange (taked about haveing a party up to 20 poeple) and the loctaion was hard to find. But when I got there WOW, they where really friendly and as I have never poured a coffee they were able to teach really easily because of the equipment they had on hand. The best thing about it was the teacher Bardley, he is just a chill dude and instead of it feeling like a class. It felt I was on the first day on the job and he was my co-working just teaching me the ropes. I would really recomend just talking the course for any reason work or just to show off skill. (the photo below the left coffee was the last one I made and the right coffee was my first try.)
