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.
