Short Barista Course (Non Accredited)

Melbourne Barista Coffee Course (Non-Accredited)

Course Detail

Melbourne's roasters and baristas are some of the most accomplished, inventive, and technical on earth. It seems with each passing month there’s a new brewing technique, new gadgets, or a shift in the idea of what good coffee means. As Melbourne today is famed for its vibrant cafe culture, with coffee shops lining every street corner, its history began on Bourke Hill, and in the 1900s the city saw numerous roasting houses sprouting along its streets.It is also the birthplace of now widely known coffee beverages such as the flat white or long black.

The term ‘flat white’ was first coined by the Australian Alan Preston in 1985. Starbucks added the drink to the menu in 2015, and then it was adopted by the rest of the world.
With such a high standard to live up to, employers and customers demand the best from their baristas. Product knowledge and technical skills go hand in hand to match the passion for coffee in Melbourne.
Our trainers know this and show where this passion for coffee comes from. Our goal is to prepare you to become a part of this vibrant coffee industry.With uninterrupted access to a group head and a steam wand you'll be making as many coffees as you can throughout the training session. Adjust your grind, texture your milk, and free pour your way into this vibrant industry.This course is a beginner’s level course.
