This program is in response to the overwhelming demand for more latte art instruction and practice. Latte art is the perfect place to start for nearly all beginners, especially anyone working to become a barista or startup their own coffee business. Latte art skills are becoming the most defining example of a barista’s capability and with a strong foundation in latte art, a student also naturally learns to care about espresso and the overall quality of coffee.
In this 6 hour workshop, you will learn how to steam milk to the proper consistency and to create many of the milk-based drinks such as macchiato, cortado, cappuccino and latte. You will also be introduced to the other common drinks on the menu and have a chance to explore some of your own questions about life behind an espresso bar.
And you will receive a certificate of completion at the end!
