    Coffee Classes / Course - which one is good?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,

    Long time reader, first time poster, so please be gentle.

    I have recently taken on a love affair with coffee and how to roast, build and present a cup. To this end, i have bought myself an EM6910 which came with the coffee course and free burr grinder.

    I have completed this course, but want to learn more. Ultimately I would like to go off and do some casual work in this industry so I am looking for an industry friendly/accepted course....which is where I need your help.

    Googling "coffee course" has 1000s of hits. The most popular seem to be William Angliss, Home Barista Institute and Barista Basics.

    Of these, does anybody have any experience, knowledge or otherwise if any one is good, bad, ugly or comparison at all?

    I really appreciate your feedback on this.

    Cheers
    Melbuurn

    I assume from your username youre from Melbuurn. (Hope its not Melt-burn over your way today - they said on the news it might)

    Have you checked the sponsors list
    e.g. Coffee Academy - Mebourne which is the William Angliss Inst. If you are planning on working in the industry, they might be your best bet.

    Melburn

    i did a course in my home with chris from talk coffee who is a site sponsor. The course was pretty good and had the added benefit of using my own equipment.

    I also got some extensive training from the various people who sold me my coffee machines over the years...... the training from Vittoria in Melbourne was quite good.

    best regards paul

    Hi All

    Thanks for your help and rosy welcome!

    The wife has booked me in to William Angliss for the $90 course so I can get a feel for it and see if I want to invest further.

    Sadly enough, the Home Barista Institute is still pestering me with calls twice a day to see if I want to their course - too expensive and not well regarded in my opinion.

    Cheers
    Melbuurn (yes, im in Melbourne and no, I didnt Melt)
