The course starts with deeper understanding of the coffee itself; its varieties, origins and processing methods and how they impact on flavour. It then builds on the Foundation level making sure baristas can calibrate the quantity of coffee used, the grind texture, the water quantity and the shot time, to produce a desired espresso brew recipe. The course touches on other aspects such as customer service, health safety and hygiene, and the profit earned by their drinks. Milk techniques are also developed with the baristas needing to produce a couple of drinks with a latte art pattern.
It is recommended that you have some experience of working in this field before attempting this level or have successfully passed Barista Skills Foundation.
