Most frequent questions and answers
Are your courses nationally recognised?

Yes! We deliver the most up to date accredited units SITHFAB025 Prepare and serve espresso coffee and SITXFSA005 Use hygienic practices for food safety in our Barista Level 1 course and SITHFAB021 Responsible Service of Alcohol in our RSA course. 

Is the Barista Level 2 course nationally recognised?

No, there is currently no nationally recognised programme for advanced barista training. We offer the advanced barista course for those who want to fine tune their skills and gain further confidence behind the coffee machine. Our focus in the advanced barista course is to teach you how to work under pressure, learn new techniques and equipment, and introduce you to latte art. Certificates of attainment from HG Coffee School are given to all students who complete the course.

How old do students need to be to enroll in a barista course?

We generally find that students 12 years and up have no trouble at all in learning and making amazing coffee with us.  As a rule if you can pour a cup of tea at home confidently you’ll have no trouble.  If in doubt don’t hesitate to contact us.

Will I learn to make all varieties of coffees?

Absolutely! It is important that all baristas have a solid understanding of the full coffee menu and any known variation amongst each variety.

I've been making coffee for years now and just need to refresh my skills, what do you suggest?

There have been so many recent changes and innovation in coffee making and its presentation that many people find they’ve been left behind. We suggest starting with barista basics, where we can explain the reason we do what we do behind the coffee machine, new style and presentation of coffee and any techniques you might be unfamiliar with. For those with recent training who want to learn how to handle a high pressure environment, multitask and present customers with beautiful latte art we suggest the advanced course.

I have never made coffee before, can I still do your barista level 1 course?

Absolutely! In fact this course is designed for those with no knowledge of coffee at all. For those with experience with coffee, this course will fill in all the gaps in your coffee knowledge and give you time to master the fundamentals of coffee.

I do not have a credit card, can I still book into the courses?

Yes, you can send us an e-mail or call us with the course you would like to book into and we can make arrangements for you to pay with cash or a bank card on the day, direct bank deposit into our accounts or pay via credit card over the phone if you are unsure of the website payment system.

What should I wear to the course?

We recommend comfortable clothing and enclosed comfortable shoes, things might get messy 🙂
