There are 1001 places offering training of sorts but most fall well short of what I call true training.Originally Posted by 7278797A6573782121160 link=1301707070/0#0 date=1301707070
Many think all that is needed is a 1 or 2 or 3 hr session and they a qualifies Barista* ;D :D ;)* *Just go to 990 of 1001 cafés and you will see what the result is.
1: Do some reading and research on places like HB How to* *and* Randy G* page.* AND lets not forget Di Bella Coffee and their coffee lab out the back as to a great experience an appreciation of coffee.
2: Then you will have a basic understanding that it is YOU and the raw product and the Grinder that is going to make all the difference.
3: At this stage your going to be then looking for Training as to polishing your methods and that is where there is a few more options.
Di Bella Coffee and Veneziano Caffe etc do have the ability for you to bring in YOUR machine and that way the training is 100% relevant.* It is up to you to chat to them and work out a time and any $$$$ involved.
The other option is to sweet talk ya GF and a respected CSér in your area with same / like machine, to give you a little [s]heads up[/s]* pre education* ;D
