Barista Workshop

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.

Latte Art Workshop

Good class considering the duration, but I wish we practised more during the session. After all, practice makes perfect, am I right?

Rose Dearinger • Nov 2020

Latte Art Workshop

This Latte Art course was absolutely perfect for my skill set, I definitely achieved what I wanted from this class. There was no messing about with basic coffee machine operation - straight to business with how to texture milk and free pour beautiful latte art. I went from absolute latte pouring novice to being able to control a heart and a leaf !

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.

Malek Elzein • Aug 2020

Latte Art Workshop

This was a great class. Making coffee is fun, doing latte art is challenging but when you are able to get that pattern in your cupthe coffee just tastes better.
Kunaal was great and has a wealth of experience. He provided great tips and advice about coffee and latte art. Definitely taught me more about how to get the art right.
The venue was great, had a nice cosy atmosphere. The equipment was amazing.
The class was so much fun and enlightening, I'd definitely do it again.
Latte art is a constant learning game and I definitely learnt more than I could from watching videos online.

Highly recommended!

Juelide Oehlhof • Jul 2020

Barista Workshop

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

Jackie Yap • Jul 2020

Teacher was knowledgeable and able to provide instructions and feedback constructively. It was a fun class and a light dinner was provided which was nice.

I got a taste of what has to be done and intend to do a lot of homework on my machine at home.

Andy is friendly and professional. Gained a lot of information about coffee making. Spent a short but valuable time.

Soo Jin Chung • Mar 2020

Coffee Cupping Tasting Session

It was a great class to get to learn about the taste of the coffee. I didn't know about the types of beans that could give a fruity flavour and now I know, which I am glad to have this lesson. One thing that could be improved would be the ways to taste the coffee, I didn't like the idea of sharing the same cups that has all the people spoons mixed in it.

Luke Hong • Feb 2020

Coffee Cupping Tasting Session

Awesome class and very knowledgeable teacher!
He shows you a variety of beans and the process of production to grinding, brewing and tasting. This is a very interesting class where you explore the subtle yet very different nuances of flavor

Nicole Fan • Feb 2020

Manual Coffee Brewing Workshop

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.

Derek Hambrett • Feb 2020

Sonal Atreja • Feb 2020

Tea Brewing Workshop

He was really knowledgeable and had a lot to tell. He was kind enough to in detail answer all the questions asked.

May be the class could be of 2 hours so that we take enough of it. We missed the iced tea part which was really upset about. Eagerly waiting for the detailed recipe for the same and try it on my own.

Beatrice Jacinda • Feb 2020

Latte Art Workshop

Very informative workshop. Andy corrected the basic common mistakes baristas make when steaming milk and pouring. Overall it was great but I’d hope to have more coffee machine during the workshop as there was only 1 machine so each of us had to take turns.

Kathy • Feb 2020

Andy was very knowledgeable and gave us loads of interesting information about coffee, its origins, and of course the art of steaming and pouring milk.

Chun Lor • Dec 2019

Free Coffee Tasting Workshop

We did a standard cupping process, tasted a variety of washed and natural single origin coffees.

George was really patient in his explanation of all the knowledge you needed to be aware of for coffees and in carrying out the tasting.

We could also ask any questions we wanted, and it was clear how passionate he was in the art form of roasting coffees, and how much he was willing to educate people on coffee.

Will definitely be back for the other workshops that Roastville / George conducts.

Ying (amanda) • Dec 2019

Our teacher Andy is quite good, well explanation, everyone got chances to try on their own,too. He also gave us great advice, which makes us get better in other attempts. Highly recommend, it’s really value just come and have fun(●´∀`●)♡

Coffee workshop review by Ying (amanda)

Michael Krampitz • Nov 2019

Latte Art Workshop

The instructors were very talented and examples were explained well.
The drawback was that a class of ten people only had one coffee machine to practise on. The workshop was useful as a tutorial but under equipped as a venue for practising and developing skills with Latte Art techniques.

Karen Wu • Nov 2019

Manual Coffee Brewing Workshop

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.

Ara Perez • Nov 2019

Barista Workshop

I'm joyous to have join thr Barista Class with teacher Andy. I learned a lot not just about the art of making king coffee but a lot more. Teacher Andy's a pro. Would definitely join another class from him. Roastville is an awesome cafe. You have to check it out while in Sydney

Sydney Stoneman • Sep 2019

Free Coffee Tasting Workshop

George our cupping instructor was amazing. Super down to earth and great conversation. We learnt A LOT about something we drink almost every day. Not only about coffee itself though, but the whole industry.

The venue was super authentic- in the back of the cafe where the (roasting) magic happens!

We had a bite to eat as well as a coffee recommendation from George in the cafe afterwards which was amazing (my friend said it was the best coffee he’d had in HIS LIFE.

Overall super positive experience- highly recommended. I may even go again if I have family in town visiting.

Alice Bae • Aug 2019

Free Coffee Tasting Workshop

It was so amazing class.
During the class, you could try variety coffee, get a lot of interesting things about coffee, and can see their fancy back stage for roasting.
Actually I'm studying about coffee, but even if you are just fan of the coffee, it will be good value to you. Really appreciate to 'D'.
By the way, it was my first time been there, so I was tried their coffee before class and after class, twice, it was sooo nice

Michael Tan • Jun 2019

Free Coffee Tasting Workshop

This was my first cupping experience and I enjoyed it so much. Our teacher, D, gave a lot of insight on the whole coffee process. I learned how different factors like geography and roasting time can alter the taste of the coffee. We had different varietals from across the world and D expertly helped us distinguish the nuances in flavor and aroma. I had a lot more appreciation for coffee after the workshop.

Johanna Guethler • Jun 2019

Latte Art Workshop

Andi was really patience and passionate about showing us all different patterns and drawings with the latte art. He watched everyone of us individually and gave us tipps to improve our skills. We were a small group, so everyone got the chance to practice a few times. I learnt a lot of different techniques and tricks to improve my pouring technique. There was even some healthy food provided for our break. Thank you Andi

Richard Vergara • Jun 2019

Free Coffee Tasting Workshop

The class takes you through the journey of coffee making, starting from the beans place of origin all the way to the preparation by the barista in order to explain the role of cupping in context. D was fantastic, sharing his experience and knowledge as a barista while keeping a friendly and interactive atmosphere. A really enjoyable experience, thanks again D! Will definitely come back when I get the opportunity.

Free Coffee Tasting Workshop review by Richard Vergara

Charmaine Chow • May 2019

Free Coffee Tasting Workshop

We were introduced to coffees from various origins (Ethiopia, Myanmar, other bits of Africa etc.), which we got to smell and taste. D the teacher was approachable and happy to answer any questions.
Materials provided for the cupping session included ground coffee from different beans (and Roastville's house blend), beans roasted differently (natural/honey process), bean skins and even a sprig with coffee cherries from their own coffee plant. Nice touch as people normally see their coffee at the very end of its production but rarely would recognise a coffee bean plant, or what the beans look like at intermediate stages of the process.
We ended up not really touching on the other factors by which to evaluate a coffee (flavour, aroma, aftertaste, body, uniformity, balance) except acidity and sweetness, but that's ok. All in a great experience. Really nice of the Roastville guys to run this workshop.

Grace Lee • May 2019

It was so helpful to learn a lot of principles, not only how to make coffee. Also the snack was lovely. I’d like to attend other coffee classes later.

Charmaine Chow • Apr 2019

Latte Art Workshop

Our trainer Andy was definitely trying to engage us from the beginning. The class ran for the full 3.5 hours. Andy focused a lot on explaining his technique but the trade off was not getting much/any practice. There were 9 students & one machine with two steam wands so two people could practice at a time. That may sound like a fair ratio but I was surprised. In the entire duration, some people got to do up to 3 pours, others 2 and in my case 1. Baffling as it already was, I didn’t believe it was very fair as what determined the number of pours each person got to do was literally how students judged your art in a “smashout” between pairs. I agree that getting into the mindset of a being in a latte art competition (and focusing on theoretical technique) is useful, but not if we are unable to even try out the technique even once (i was given one go at the heart but not at the rosetta, free pour or even tulip after they were each explained). How different is this to watching video tutorials? Also it was established at the start that just about everyone in the class was doing this out of interest/ non professional reasons, so i really felt like there were no grounds for the lack of attempts/practice given.

Some food was provided which was a nice touch.

I came into class early and was all set up to give this class a splendid review, but the bottom line is: for 3.5 hours I only got one pour (doing a basic heart) and that’s definitely not what I paid/signed up for. And yes, I might have felt inclined not to leave such a review if everyone got the same number of tries, even if it was only 3 pours each.

Alex Larsen • Apr 2019

Free Coffee Tasting Workshop

This was a wonderful introduction to coffee tasting. I had always wanted to do a coffee cupping but felt intimidated by not knowing much about the process and how to taste. This workshop was relaxed and casual, but also really informative. I'd recommend this for anyone who's never done a cupping before and wants to learn more, and for those who have I think it's still a great opportunity to work on tasting and evaluating different coffees!

Miguel Hoyos • Apr 2019

Davide Aglieri • Mar 2019

Latte Art Workshop

Useful, easy and funny workshop, basic theory everybody should know about before starting. I found all the class very interesting, a good balance between theory and practice. Sure in 3 hours you don't learn how to be a latte art master, but it's good for building up the basis to rely on.
The teacher is a champ. He really wants to help and he was absolutely available for any issue or question.

Great class and learnt a lot! However, timing did not match as they said 3pm and not 2 pm. Luckily we lived nearby so we were able to run some errands before coming back for the class.

The teacher was just extremely knowledgeable however for the whole 3.5hrs we only attempted 1 cup of latte art, very disappointed about that.

Latte Art Workshop

Andy’s teaching method was easy to understand and allowed us lots of time to harness and practice our technical skills with his expertise guidance. The class was interactive and fun - I especially enjoyed the “latte art smackdown!” Would recommend this class for both beginners as well as those with more experience looking to fine tune their skills.

Latte Art Workshop

The teacher was good, the environment was funny and great.
Anyway I came to improve my latte art skills and it was theoretical and less practical ~ used actual milk just twice during 3.5 hrs. So if you're about to learn about the theoretical latte art this is the place for you.
For me it wasn't the best value for money anyway but nice experience.

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.

Latte Art Workshop

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.

Latte Art 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.

Michelle Jay • Oct 2018

Free Coffee Tasting Workshop

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 profileswe 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.

Latte Art Workshop

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!
