From espresso basics to specialty coffee techniques, we'll show you the tips and tricks of Melbourne's finest.


Cafe's are an intrinsic part of Melbourne culture. Yet the coffee quality can vary greatly between cafes and even individual baristas. It's not uncommon for customers to check if their barista is working before ordering! Many owners can't afford to send someone offsite for training so let us help you out. 

We'll come on-site to your cafe in metro Melbourne and develop a program for your set up and staff.
