We strongly recommend that if you haven’t completed a level 1 course with the HG Coffee School you do this first. In our level 2 course we do not teach the fundamentals which are taught in the level 1 course. The level 1 course is a great opportunity for active baristas to plug the holes in their knowledge and correct bad habits which you may not be aware of. If you’re confident of your fundamental knowledge of: Grinder operation, dosing, tamping, milk texturing and pouring, give us a call and we can discuss a free 15 min assessment prior to you booking in.
We have a variety of new industry relevant machines and grinders and electronic tampers that students work on. We encourage our students to rotate across the different makes and models of machines and grinders. This familiarisation sets our students up well to confidently work in any cafe they may find themselves in.
No, as long as you are comfortable holding a jug of hot milk (65 degrees celsius) and can reach over a standard kitchen bench, there will be no issues. If you do have any concerns about participating please call us to discuss alternative training options
