Certified Barista Course Adelaide

Adelaide's Premiere Barista Training Facility

Our espresso machines and grinders are new and industry relevant so our students learn on equipment they're most likely to work on in the industry. Too often our students comment on having prior training elsewhere on equipment that is so old it's no longer found in active cafes and restaurants.  Tamping, grinding and machine technology is always evolving, we ensure our students encounter no surprises on the job

Industry Active Trainers

When choosing where to undertake your barista training you should be asking: who will be training me? and what recent experience do they have in the industry? At the HG Coffee School, coffee is all we do! Our trainers compete and judge in state and national competitions, and partner and consult with some of Adelaide's busiest cafes. Not only that, but we've also designed a calendar of professional development events with the industry's leading contributors and businesses   in the coffee industry to keep you on your game!

A Full Training Pathway

We have gone to great lengths to become South Australia's trusted supplier of industry relevant training, grooming new baristas into qualified and competent coffee professionals. Our pathway to coffee mastery begins with our Level 1 & Safe Food Handling course and progresses to Barista Level 2, Work Experience, Latte Art, Speciality Brewing, Equipment Maintenance, Bartending Level 1 & 2 & our fantastic Job Hunting Workshop to assist you in securing paid work in the industry!

Certified Training

Our certified courses are specifically designed to have our graduates workplace ready.  As one of South Australia's most trusted hospitality training providers our certified training is sought after by industry employers and assists our graduates in getting their foot in the door.  Our certified training not only attracts new comers to the industry but many who have already completed training elsewhere

Industry Placement Program

We wholly believe that our commitment to our students doesn't end with training, we differ greatly with other training providers in Adelaide by supporting our students all the way into employment with our Industry Placement Program. We know how hard it can be getting your foot in the door without experience so we are always on the lookout for cafes and restaurants to partner with to help us provide work experience for our students. Relevant experience and a glowing reference can make all the difference!

100% Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee

We believe that if you purchase a product or service of any variety and you do not receive what you are promised you should never be left unhappy. If we fail to deliver on our promise of the highest quality training in Adelaide we offer a 100% money back guarantee and we always have. We can proudly say that we've never had a dissatisfied student and as at September 2016 we've had over 14,000 happy students still singing our praise!

This is what our Barista Level 1 Graduates had to stay about the training...

I had some doubts going into the training, I was most worried about ‘too much theory’. The theory was minimal, all practical work and very hands-on. The HG Coffee School are experts!

George Harabalakis
State Manager Grinders Coffee

I would recommend this training to everyone because it’s a great skill set to have wherever you go.  It was an awesome day which was very informative.

James Heidrich
Jacobs Creek Wines

Having only ‘on the job’ training, I found this course to be rather informative.  Luke shared his passion for coffee through his instructing – More courses need a Luke!
