Is there a real barista in you?
Who doesn’t love coffee? At least you do! A proper espresso to start the day, prepare a perfect cappuccino or latte macchiato for yourself and for friends… Have you ever thought about perfecting your barista skills? Maybe you like it so much that you’d like to make it your work. Now you can do that. And it starts with our online Barista Skills training.
In this e-learning, we’ll show you step by step what’s involved to prepare the drinks from the coffee menu with an espresso machine. That doesn’t mean that you already have to have a professional device in your house. Even if you have a single serve espresso machine, you’ll learn enough from the online training to improve your skills. And above all: to find out if the profession might be right for you!
What are you going to learn?
This online training is an e-learning module consisting of short videos, divided into 4 chapters, in which we cover all aspects of the barista profession.
Let’s start at the workplace. What materials and ingredients do you need? We’ll show you how to set up the coffee grinder, how to prepare the espresso and how to then assess it. Espresso is the basis of the drinks of the coffee menu. To make a good cappuccino we teach you how to foam and pour milk. And how to serve the coffee drink in the right way. A clean work station is important. The last chapter is dedicated to hygiene.
Each chapters followed by a test. Quite a few questions about the topics we discussed in this lesson. These questions are based on the questions of the Barista Skills Foundation theory exam of the SCA(Specialty Coffee Association). The SCA offers the possibility to certify you as a barista. If you are interested in this, please contact us after this training. We’ll help you prepare for your exam and skills test.
Duration: The total duration of the e-learning is 4 to 5 hours. The training is accessible for 6 months.
