I am a passionate and dedicated coffee enthusiast and barista, and committed to using my skills to empower others. I realised that there was a gap in the barista training market that focused on the intricate details to help aspiring baristas develop the skills and knowledge to produce coffee that is unique to their style and meets every customer's expectations.

My course is not about spending a few hours in a busy class, just to receive a certificate which doesn’t promise you anything. Instead it is a one-on-one experience focusing on the little details that matter. The details that change a customer's experience for the better and enable you, as a barista, to learn a new skill and explore the passion of coffee.

I highly recommend this course if you (as a beginner) would like to learn the ‘basics’ (so no previous knowledge is required). This one-on-one experience means so much extra - I basically felt much more comfortable this way than just be one from the 15-20 students in a class.
Silvia is a very passionate, precise and conscientious teacher and she gave a lot of tips and hints, what I can instantly use if I will work in a coffee shop.
Thank you Silvia!

Silvia is very detailed and friendly. She really went through the basic so it's very recommended for coffee enthusiast with zero experience who'd love to know more the basic of coffee making. My class is on one one and I'm very satisfied with Silvia's class as I got to grasp so much. Thankyou for the hospitality, Silvia!

Silvia was very knowledgeable and passionate about coffee, and had a lot of experience to share. The venue was a well-presented café with very good and clean equipment. The content of the class was hands-on and in good detail. We learnt how to maintain and control the machines as well as how to get decent shots and quality milk. Highly recommended for people who are passionate to learn practical skills.
