So What Do Our Classes Look Like?

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!

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

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!
