What our students say:
Great experience and perfect for someone who wants more knowledge or are a beginner barista. I did Level one and had a great time learning. Will be back for level 2 soon!
The guys here are awesome! They really listen to what you need help with and give you the assistance you need. I did the barista level 1 course and also the latte art course and learnt so much. I went there with barely any coffee knowledge and left with great foaming skills and being able to do some latte art! Everyone is so enthusiastic which makes you just as excited as them to learn and do your best. Cheers guys!
Learning with HG was a great experience. Mathew and Isaac both have great in-depth knowledge of the subject and shared as much as they possibly could within the time-frame. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone who wants to understand coffee and look forward to the next session. Thanks guys.
HG coffee school is a great environment to learn in and I think it's great meeting new people and gaining the confidence in front of people
HG Coffee School is AWESOME! I love being there and they teach very well. You will appreciate everything! Not just a typical school because you find yourself having a lot of Fun by doing their courses. Hands on teaching is EXCELLENT!!!
After successfully completing the Beginners & Expert level courses at HG, I received four job offers (three of which I had to turn down).
I would definitely recommend HG's barista training to anyone who is finding it difficult to gain employment.
All trainers are incredibly enthusiastic and passionate about coffee, which in turn makes YOU passionate about being a barista.
Throughout the level 1 and 2 Barista courses, i didn't once feel lost or over my head, and i could clearly see my vast improvement when it was all over! I would highly recommend these courses!
My husband and I took the intro to coffee course and loved it! The 3 hour class went by very quickly, and we walked away feeling excited about the theory we learned. We couldn't wait to get home and practice our new skills!
Had a blast during my Barista level 1 course. The time definitely flew by. I dont think i could find any one else as passionate about coffee as my teachers. Hopefully coming back soon to do level 2 �
All our baristas get their training at HG and always they come out of their sessions with Luke really excited about coffee, keen to practise their skills and full of confidence! I really couldn't recommend this school highly enough.
I had a great time in the barista level 1 course. There was plenty of in depth background information, and the hands-on experience was fantastic. Having small group and one-on-one instruction allowed for a comprehensive set of skills and techniques to be practiced. Mathew and Sean were excellent leaders and I would definitely take a class with them again.
Had a ball today doing level 1 learnt so much & thanks to Matthew & Isaac for being awesome,both are easy going & so much knowledge can't wait to do level 2 & more,i learnt not to do a long black with milk haha lol ,thanks heaps guys see ya soon
Matthew is an absolute genius when it comes to coffee! Thank you for your extremely wise words and understanding. I'm an old school 90's taught barista but Matthew showed me the way!! Thank you
Peter, Luke, and Isaac are the real coffee aficionados! Coffee is their passion and it resonates to all the students. I learned a lot from Luke in my Level 1 & 2 training sessions. He's such a great trainer! Isaac gave me a demo of manual brewing using brewover method. And I learned a few tips of analyzing the flavour and aroma! And of course, Peter. He's the man! Ask him everything about coffee, he will give you a very valuable insight. I learned a lot about the industry from him! I highly recommend HG Coffee School to everyone.
The best school to learn everything about coffee. They're well organised and worth every penny. Simply awesome!
I highly recommend anybody who is remotely interested in great coffee attend these courses ... Peter and his team are incredibly passionate about teaching you everything you need to know about the art of great coffee ... Just do it 🙂
Thanks HG Coffee School for an amazing session today! I am grateful for a fantastic experience. I loved it and I will be back for more. You guys are superstars! 5+++
Time flies when you're having fun. This course is a great way to learn about coffee. A good step for those looking for cafe /batista work. Thanks again guys!
It was a beautiful experience. We learned so much about coffee and i would definitely continue all the courses. A special thanks to sean our trainer.
Awesome as thanks for everything. I am very excited to know how to make a good coffee now and look forward to hopefully finding employment as a barista and perhaps doing the advanced course. Thanks again. 🙂
Knowledgeable, friendly and really helpful teachers and a great amount of hands-on experience, particularly in the Level 2 Barista's course. Will definitely recommend!

I would highly recommend this course (Barista Level 1) as it was thorough and the trainers were so knowledgeable, we could throw anything at them and they had an answer!
— Belinda Eastham, Manager Bun Cha Restaurant
I highly recommend this course – even though we could make coffee well before we attended, we are going away feeling well trained in all aspects of coffee and know we will be making the best coffee in the Mid North SA. Come visit us for the taste test!!!

I really enjoyed the Barista Level 1 course on Saturday. I got everything out of the course that I was hoping to and more. It was very professional and easy to understand. The two instructors Mat and Sean were fantastic, they were very professional and made the learning process easy and fun. It was very clear that they take pride in their job an enjoy the industry. From an outsider looking to learn this is always great to see that the people who are training you enjoy it as well.
Keep up the good work guys!!
HG Coffee is a great company with great people working for them and in my opinion a business like this will always be very successful!!
— Darren Camporeale, Director Organico Prima
The greatest strength of the training was the instructors ability to keep our attention by giving us full hands on experience. This course is a must for all people handling and selling coffee. I will ensure all my baristas have accredited training so we all meet exacting standards across my business. Uniformity is a must!
— Steven Wade, Owner Bridge Hotel Langhorne Creek
One of the best courses and presentations I’ve ever had!
— Tony Bonello, Owner Two Bees Café Victor Harbour
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!
— Amanda Street, Manager Hudsons Coffee Calvary
Had a great time, experienced trainers, lots of theory and practical work. Learnt lots!
— Mark Ruta, Director Pullman Coffee Tampers
The course provided everything it promised and more as the instructors related a lot of examples for domestic machines and commercial baristas. I would recommend this school to people that would like to earn more about making coffee or getting a job in the industry
