Learn How to Brew Café Quality Coffee at Home!
Designed with the home enthusiast in mind, our home barista course will teach you how to become a better home barista and help you get the very best out of your home espresso machine and grinder.
The course will be taught by an experienced barista, using our suite of top of the range Sage home espresso machines and grinders, specially selected to ensure that your training environment closely matches a typical home espresso set up.
