Espresso Coffee Class
Who this class is for?
Monks three-hour espresso and milk steaming class is suitable for all baristas – whether you’re just starting out in coffee and want to learn the basics of how to make beautiful espresso and steam milk, or you’ve been making espresso drinks for a while and want to develop your skills further. This class is also popular with people who are curious about specialty coffee and want to learn more about why certain coffees taste the way they do, or simply just want to get more out of their cafe visits.
What you’ll learn
In this fun and hands-on class, we’ll show you how we make espresso in our cafe and teach you some skills that will help you make beautiful espresso-based beverages at home. We’ll taste different extractions side by side and show you how to tweak your espresso recipes to get the most out of your beans and home equipment. We’ll also share our tips for steaming milk and show you how to pour latte art so your drinks will look as delicious as they taste! This class covers the journey of the coffee beans from harvest to roaster to cup, how to assess extraction and describe the flavours of the brew, and how to steam and pour milk. The class also takes place in our roastery, so you will also learn about the roasting process first hand.
What to expect on the day
Our espresso class has a maximum of four participants, so you’ll have plenty of hands-on experience making coffee, and plenty of time to ask all your espresso-related questions. You’ll be making and tasting coffee throughout the session, and we’ll also send you home with a bag of Monks Coffee beans and a copy of our brewing guide which covers what you learned so you can keep up your new skills at home
