What our students say:

My staff and I completed the Level 1 Barista Course at HG Coffee School and were blown away by the knowledge and professionalism they possess! The trainers were extremely enthusiastic and made the day extremely enjoyable. We definitely recommend using HG Coffee School if you want to learn everything about coffee and have a fun time doing it!! We are looking forward to completing Level 2 and perfecting our latte art!! Thanks HG Coffee School!!!

I came to the course with little training but left with knowledge and confidence to make great coffee.  This I was amazed with and left the course very happy.  I will be ensuring that all my staff attend this course.  I will definitely be back for the Barista Level 2 course!

— Steve Ryles, Owner Perfect Cup McLaren Vale

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!!!


— Heather Pretlove, Owner Wild Saffron Cafe

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
