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.

We had a really great time doing this course - it was extremely informative, interesting, and fun! Highly recommend, especially to people who don't know much about coffee but would love to learn more :)

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!

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.

Steve Beresford Mar 2021

Great session, learned heaps. Justin was able to adjust the time to suit me skill level, answer all my questions and provide all manner of hints and tips to help me along.

Michael Handley Feb 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.)
