Regarding The Pandemic That Never Ends
Hello students! We love that you have so much passion for coffee that you're looking for classes to help you reach your next step. We have decided it is safest to only host private classes at this time. A private class does currently allow for groups of up to four people to attend together with no change in price, but that may change if the cooler months prove to bring an increased risk of transmission of Covid.
Also, due to elevated Covid cases in some parts of Brooklyn and Queens that have led to a shut down of schools and businesses, our class availability is very limited right now. Our classroom is located in a yellow zone and may remain open, but the cases have had an impact on instructor availability.
We currently only have classes on Saturdays. They are full price and can only be reserved in two hour blocks. We apologize for having to be all business and no fun right now. We really hope we can accommodate more people's schedules and budgets soon!

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.
