    Barista Courses in Adelaide?

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

    Ive been playing with my EM6910 and EM0480 Grinder for about 4-5 weeks now and have been making some OK coffee. Im now looking at getting some finer points on the way to improve my espresso technique buy doing a Barista course. Does anyone know where Barista courses (that you take your own equipment to) are held around Adelaide? (or near to Adelaide)

    Any info would be much appreciated :)

    Cheers

    Justin

    Hi Justin,

    Im not sure if anyone offers an in-home course in Adelaide.

    Id be delighted to come over for a day if you could find a few like-minded mates?

    regards

    Chris (2MCM) recommended Brian Raslan (Sa Coffee Academy).

    I tried to ring to get more details but it seems they are having phone/answering machine issues.

    In home, probably no one but I would be interested in an in home demo if people could get together and time/cost suited, and a suitable venue could be found.

    I did the Sunbeam coffee appreciation course here in Adelaide - the company hired in local baristas and it was quite good. Could have been better if the class did not have people in it who went just to sticky beak and show they obviously did not take their coffee seriously, but the salient point is that the course had local gurus teaching it. Perhaps a call to Sunbeam SA to find out if these people belong to any particular place.

    I found this link: non sponsor link removed by mods- but I dont know what theyre like.

    The Lavazza Coffee Academy also runs in Adelaide from time to time

    I was looking at the First Class Espresso Experience. A work colleague went on the basic course, and it was really basic (this is a coffee bean)

    2MCM, what sort of numbers do you need? And how much would we be looking at per person?....and of course, where?

    Cheers,
    Dave.
