Teacher friendly and happy to help and answer questions. Equipment and space nice. Emphasis of course was on latte art which was a bit further on than barista basics I was expecting but time was given to basics as well.

Instructor was fantastic. Very informative class. Half of the class is a history of coffee including the supply chain and process from fruit to cup. The other half is brewing espresso and making white coffees. Very interesting throughout and enjoyable class.

I thought Kunal was an excellent teacher. I really enjoyed the historical side of coffee making. Roastville was a good venue, easy to socially distance and with excellent facilities. A light meal was appreciated. I left feeling enthusiastic about not making “rubbish “ coffee again.

Juelide Oehlhof Jul 2020

The teacher was really nice and explained everything and helped us through the single steps. He had a lot of knowledge and loves to share it with his students. In the class, you learn everything about the basic steps and a bit of knowledge as well. It was really good and I thought I knew a bit about coffee, but I was wrong. Luckily I decided to take this class! Would do it every time again and I will take an advanced class when possible

Yumi Yong Jun 2020

Andy is super nice and friendly, offering not only kind explanations of coffee’s history and changes of all different styles but also dinner! I would definitely love to take another course of his. I had a bunch of questions and he answered really nicely until the end. Thank you for being such a nice teacher, mentor, trainer for me.
