Training on milk based espresso drinks provides the Barista with the skill and consistency to master the steam wand of a commercial La Marzocco machine.
After booking your course, we will record your booking and send you an email once we have started taking bookings again for our training courses. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions we feel it is currently not safe to deliver a fun and engaging course. Once these restrictions are lifted/eased we can begin taking bookings for your training course.
||Training sessions take place at our Roastery in Wrights Mower centre, Dunsbridge Turnpike, Royston SG8 6RB.
It has now become common place to expect some beautifully presented latte art to adorn your coffee experience. This is achieved by a method known as milk stretching by introducing air from the steam wand of the espresso machine into the milk. The size of milk jug/pitcher is very important and we will together introduce the correct amount of steam to the correct temperature of between 60-70 degrees to make beautiful micro-foam with which to pour latte art. We will demystify this entire process with you and can often end up with our trainees pouring hearts, petals and rosettas on their coffees before the session has ended.
We will cover the techniques involved in producing a range of micro-foam in milk, and demonstrate how this process affects flavour. Milk temperature and its effect on the coffee will be shown, alongside how the ratio of espresso to milk characterises and defines the coffee we drink.
