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

During this course a lot of tasting takes place to reinforce theory.

The Home Barista one sounds good.
Hopefully I can get a day off work to go.
Nooo.... Its on a weekday:( Wish I could attend... *sigh*
Ill deny you were ever there if you suddenly feel too sick to go to work that day. ;)
Coffeekid, your profile says youre 14 years old...which means you should be on school holidays... :)
Oh, unless you actually are 14, maybe you werent joking, whoops
Yep, Its on second the week of school.:(
***The Home course has been moved to Sat 9th of Feb***
G.O.D. unfortunately not, most of the people attending have their busy days at work on Sat, Sun so thats why I have made it Friday.
Jason, is there any chance the pro barista course could also be moved to a weekend day?Originally Posted by Pioneer Roaster link=1194473461/0#10 date=1194560947
Yer that would be awesome! But if not I might be able to get a day off school since its a friday anyway:P
