Description

The ONA Coffee Foundation Barista Course is designed to open your eyes to the world of coffee.

We will equip you with the technical skills to competently operate an espresso machine. The variables are endless, however, there are three main areas to focus on that can make or break a coffee from cup to cup; Extractions, Milk Stretching & Pouring. By the end of this course, you will have a greater understanding of the correct way to perform these skills.

This course is jam packed and will give you the foundational base to be able to create delicious coffees at home. 

This course is designed for those with limited or no experience, or for those that simply want to be able to make a nice coffee at home.

Outline:

  • Green-bean journey comparing Arabica vs Robusta, Washed vs Dry Process & the journey taken prior to the café
  • Introduction to the machine and grinder, safety warnings & how to achieve consistency with manual grinding & free-pouring shots
  • Analysing the correct espresso volume, time, dose, aroma, taste & colour
  • Correct dosing, distribution & tamping
  • Fundamentals of ristretto vs espresso & extractions
  • Break down our two-stage approach of how to achieve silky milk
  • Learn how to free-pour all your coffees to get the correct depths of foam & ideal ‘canvas’.
  • Daily & weekly maintenance needed to maintain ideal machine performance

All classes are limited to six participants & you will receive a Certificate of Achievement at the completion of the class.

Additional Needs:

We will happily cater for vegans & milk-based allergies. Please leave a comment when you book your course if you require almond or soy milk & feel welcome to bring your own preferred milk substitute.

International students - our courses are performed in English. We can make arrangements if you need to bring an interpreter with you. Please let us know how we can assist you.


When you Arrive:

please head up the driveway past ONA Coffee House Cafe and continue down towards the barn doors with coffee handles on them and make yourself comfortable inside on the leather couches.

On the weekend there will be a sign next the the roller door near the barn doors and the trainer will come and meet you there when it is time for the course.

Really informative and action-packed class. Dave was passionate about teaching and everything coffee and he was willing to answer all our questions, check our coffee/milk steaming. Learned a lot about the connection between growing coffee beans, the roasting process and brewing. I enjoyed the class a lot! Recommend Dave as your trainer. Machines and training room was top notch stuff. Tiny con - I really wish we could walk away with some coffee as souvenirs, even a small 100g bag will do.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Canberra ONA Level one, entry training Tom, our trainer was great & knows his coffee I loved having my own individual coffee machine to practice on. I totally recommend ONA to learn to become a great barista Juliana
