I am lucky to be one of the students for this Barista training class. It is fantastic to have the opportunity to join this training program.

The training materials are clear with everything on a well-organized website that I can easily refer back for the have the training from a cafe and everything is so real not just from textbook. I have many opportunities to practice. Attention to every details from grinding, tampering to texturing is important to make a good coffee. It gives me sense of achievement when I can really make a coffee for customers.


I enjoyed learning how to use the coffee machines to make different types of coffees. I also get to learn how to make different types of milks for the coffees.

I enjoyed learning lots of different names for coffees. I learnt so many different Coffee Terminology words.

I would recommend this program to anyone. Thank you so much...I really enjoyed it.
