    Training with Scott Callaghan

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all SE Qld coffeesnobs. World Latte Art champion and Australian Barista Champion, Scott Callaghan, will be holding barista classes at Pioneer Coffee, Yandina, in early February.

    1) Home Barista Course *7th Feb 2008 (9-12) or (1-3)
    Two hours or three hours with Scott learning everything you need to know about getting the most from your home equipment, you are encouraged to bring your own equipment in, but there will be 1 or 2 machines spare if you cannot. The class is the ultimate indulgence for the budding home barista and includes Scotts training manual and 500gm of coffee. Bookings essential by end of 2008.

    2) Pro Barista Course *8th Feb 2008 (9-4) inc Barista Manual
    Three hours of theory followed by three hours of practical workshop. This is an intensive course designed for the proffesional barista. It covers the journey from seed to cup, touching on some of the fundamentals of coffee and its characteristics, such as single origins and roasting, while spending most of the first 3 hours on espresso extraction and the importance this plays in regards to flavour.

    * * * * * *Fresh coffee why

    * * * * * *Grinding on demand

    * * * * * *Achieving consistent dosing

    * * * * * *Adjusting the grind

    * * * * * *Cleaning importance of

    * * * * * *The coffee menu

    * * * * * *Touching on latte art



    During this course a lot of tasting takes place to reinforce theory.
    We break for lunch and then the afternoon is spent putting this theory into practice.

    Bookings are essential for these days, please contact myself before December 25th to reserve a place. jason@coffeeroastery.com.au

    If there is a big enough demand, and soon, I can move the home classes to Sat 9th Feb, let me know.....sooner rather than later before classes become booked.
    Jason, is there any chance the pro barista course could also be moved to a weekend day?
