always wanted to become a barista?

Coffee is such an important part of daily life that we sometimes seem to forget that there is a whole process involved in making it. True coffee lovers go beyond their Nespresso, but delve into the origin of the coffee bean, the espresso machines and the frothing of the milk, know what your grinding settings do to the taste, and can turn frothy milk into cute little hearts. From beginner to the more advanced barista who wants to optimize his skills. We offer suitable courses for every level
