We loved the Tea Brewing workshop and our group had a great time.
The teacher was very knowledgeable and passionate about tea! It was so interesting to learn about the different types of tea, where they are from and how they are made. It was especially great being able to taste the difference!
Thanks for rekindling my passion for tea!

The teacher was fantastic and it was clear he was very passionate. We learnt a lot, but we also were expecting more of a practical component. Also, standing for one and a half hours was very uncomfortable and some more stools would have been very beneficial.

This workshop focused very heavily on the technique for pouring latte art, including details on the scientific aspect of how and why heated milk can be used to create designs. While this was useful information, it took quite a long time to explain and the instructor tended to repeat the same points multiple times. The workshop is advertised as needing no prior experience, however the first thing the instructor mentioned was that it would have been beneficial if people had attended the "Espresso Workshop" before attending this one.

We practised the techniques with water, which was a good idea as it allowed us to continue practising and adjusting our hand and arm movements (and the floor ended up getting quite wet!). However, after the introduction, explanations and water practise, no one actually got to touch milk until 7.30pm.

The workshop teaches three key designs, considered the building blocks of all latte art. We learnt the first of these designs before having a break (where we were fed some very tasty food!) but there was so little time left after the break that we had to rush through the other two designs. There were 10 students in the workshop, and all up over the 3.5 hours each student only got to attempt pouring with real milk and coffee once.

The instructor was very knowledgeable and skilled and had a warm and friendly approach. He made everyone feel welcomed and safe to just give it a go. The venue was good, although with everyone crowded around one machine I don't think it would be so comfortable with any more than 10 people. Overall the course achieved what I was looking for - to gain some knowledge of latte art so that I can go away and practise on my own. I do think it could benefit from a bit more structure though, to give students more chances to try out what they're learning.

This was a Christmas gift to me from two of my sons who also joined me. We are not barristers or involved in a café but just coffee lovers. Our teacher was Andy Liu. He was great. His knowledge and tips were well received and enjoyed by all. The venue was very good and the 3 hours we had was well spent. Driving home we were talking about what workshop will we do next with Andy.

Vincent was great! He has certainly done a lot of analyzing of coffee and latte art and it shows in his work and his teaching. I enjoyed learning from him as he has a true passion for it and they are the best people to learn from. The main thing I learnt was what my bad habits are and how to correct them, which is what I wanted to get out of it.

The training venue is a very good, very comfortable and very relaxing place. The cafe it self is a very good place for hanging out with friends, having a relaxing meeting with business client.
The teacher explaining a lot, more details explaining my question and give me more knowledge of tasting coffee. I am having a greatly experience to having a good cappuccino coffee from an excellent barista. It is highly recommend and good value for money.
I am greatly appreciate for having this class and many, many thanks for this opportunity, can't wait for the next workshop.

The teacher was amazing and very knowledgeable on all aspects of latte art and showed the class the 3 basic shapes: Heart, Tulip and Rosetta. The lessons were broken down in a very technical way which I found useful for practice and further development. We were trained on cup grip, milk jug grip and alignment, pouring technique like the angle of the cup, speed of pour, placement of pour etc. and milk steaming techniques.

All materials were provided and were of high quality with a range of milk jug sizes and shapes combined with a high tech commercial coffee machine.

The venue was inside the Roastville Coffee shop itself and it had a very earthy, chilled feel and was very clean with food provided half way through the course.

Value for money is subjective and I would say depends on how passionate you are about latte art. In this class, you're not just given a milk jug for 3 hours and aimlessly playing around but you are step by step trained in all aspects of pouring art and given expert tips from a barista champion and for me is priceless value.

I absolutely enjoyed the class as I knew absolutely nothing about coffee tasting. The venue was really nice and everything was nicely laid out. The technicalities were explained well on coffee cupping. However the teacher spoke too fast and assumed too much. E.g. he started off by saying 'you know how cupping works?' ....this is why we are attending this class!!!! Again we didn't really learn the flavour profiles...we were told its mainly guess work. We ended up asking the teacher so many questions to dot the lines in between. I guess it was a free class so we shouldn't expect much. Overall I learnt something and am considering the barista course. Hopefully as it's a paid class the teacher would explain a bit more.

Great 'cupping' experience, can't believe it was free of charge! We learnt a lot about how coffee is picked, dried and roasted and their unique flavours. We enjoyed trying the different types of coffee and even bought a bag of our favourite (Totora) at the end. Thanks Roastville!

Andy was an awesome teacher - really funny and knowledgeable. He is amazing at what he does and we were in awe. The space is great and the coffee is delicious. We were provided with pizza as our light meal which was very tasty! There was a lot of hands on practice (with water) but it was great to have someone of his calibre show us the techniques. There are a few things that prevented me from giving five stars though. On Classbento it says that class sizes range from 1 - 6 students however we had 15 crowded around 1 machine which was okay when using the water for practicing but our class went 30 minutes overtime due to waiting for everyone to have a turn which actual milk. Also on Classbento it says you receive a gift bag which we did not get. I asked the owner on our way out and he said that it was a mistake. Overall a fun night with a lot of laughs and great company!

Andy was very informative and precise in helping us improve our milk frothing and pouring techniques. The classes could have been smaller as we were pressed for time and having more machines handy would have been good.

Venue and facilities were great and very modern. However I felt there was a lot of theory and not enough time allocated to put these skills into physical practice.

The teacher was super knowledgeable but often too quiet and I'd recommend asking lots of questions to get him talking a bit more.
It'd be nice if there was somewhere to put bags, and a bit more general organisation.
