Did you start making coffee during the pandemic? Now's the time to take it to the next level
Hello 2021! And yay vaccine on the horizon?! We have resumed private and small group classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Your private class can consist of just you, you and a friend, or a group of up to 4 people with no change in price. And, even better, you can focus on exactly what you want to learn right now.
Group classes are a budget-friendly way to learn and also a nice way to get your daily dose of human interaction. We hope you will choose whatever is best for you and be smart! Don't come to class if you don't feel well or if you think you've been exposed to Covid. Refunds will always be given in these situations.
For private lessons on Tuesdays or Thursdays (or both) a 15% discount is automatically applied when you sign up for more than one time slot. For example, if you want a 2 hour class or 2 one hour classes on different days, just add the times to your cart and you'll see the discount at checkout.
I hope you enjoyed the holidays and we look forward to meeting you in class!
What you can learn in a private class:
In your private class you can focus on whatever matters to you most!
Most classes will begin with learning about the espresso equipment, the beginner's espresso technique, how to steam milk and the first steps for pouring latte art. Espresso skills include information and practice with grinding, dosing, tamping and extracting espresso. You will then learn how to steam milk to the proper temperature and consistency required to pour latte art, as well as have an opportunity to try pouring a few drinks and designs.
Your time can also be used to learn about many of the common drinks on a coffee menu, including filter coffee, cold brew coffee, espresso, americano, macchiato, cortado, cappuccino and latte.
If latte art is your priority, your instructor may help by steaming your milk so that you can focus on learning the pouring of up to 3 basic designs: heart, tulip, and rosetta. Milk steaming can be practiced in longer classes or in follow-up sessions.
If you have questions about opening a coffee shop we are likely to be able to answer many of your questions about everything from which equipment is best for you, which coffee roasters you might be interested in talking to, to questions about hiring baristas and what drinks to include on your menu.
No matter what you'd like to focus on, we have the skills and expertise to help you improve to the next step.
