I really enjoyed the 2 days Barista course. I had such a great time learning about expresso and how to make the perfect cup of coffee. The instructor Ben Forsyth shared lots of his practical skills and knowledge. I highly recommend this course for those who wants to learn more about coffee or become a barista.
