Kamal is a great instructor and always checking in to clear up any doubts. Would be great if there is more feedback as to how I can make better coffee.

Really loved the class! The teacher was great! Taught a lot of information and keen to answer all our questions. We even get to take home a bag of Gesha coffee beans! Will definitely be back!

Really fun class and our coffee coach was really kind and approachable. Learned heaps in just 2-3 hours and was so wired from the coffee. They even gave us a free bag of coffee at the end to take home, which was awesome. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

Jake and I have learnt so much about coffee culture. We now see coffee in a whole new light and will definitely appreciate the substance behind every single cuppa. Highly recommended. Small class of 4. We each had a complimentary pack of coffee beans after the class.

Good class! we learnt a lot about brewing coffee and the different varieties. Andy is really passionate and answered all our coffee rookie questions.

Karen Wu • Nov 2019

The teacher was experienced and knowledgeable. It was a bit crowded and at times hard to hear due to the noise from the cafe.
Great experience of learning how to do coffee cupping and the different filter methods and grind size.
Would have been great to be shown the variety of filter coffee equipment available for purchase. We were looking at the equipment ourselves and some were not shown in the class so we didn't know what to choose.
Lovely touch with a bag of coffee beans to take home.

Great class, small sizes and tailored to the audience skill and random coffee questions. A great walkthrough!

Engaging and very informative. It was a very good primer on manual brewing theory for anyone that is interested in coffee. Two thumbs up and an A+ to the instructor.

Great value for money. Andy was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. Loved his analogies :) Class was kept small which was good as I think it would be quite hard with a big group. I learned a lot!
