A lot of coffee companies are happy to ship machines out, sometimes with an engineer who will connect it all up, switch it on and give a five minute presentation about how the machine works, and this is what they call “Barista Training”
You’ll be pleased to hear that this is not our idea of Barista training. Our engineer will install the machine and will give a run through how the machine works, how to adjust it and how to clean it. We just call this basic installation.
A Barista trainer will then visit you to go through a full presentation and training session where we show ( and get you to try ) how to make all the variations of espresso based drinks that you are likely to be asked for. It is very much a hands on process and all members of your team should feel comfortable and confident using the machine by the time the session is over. Of course having been shown how to do it, you will then need plenty of practice to develop and hone your skills. However if for any reason you feel further training is required, we’ll pop back and run through it again! You will then be left with copies of our “Barista Skills” and “Know your Coffee” manuals for future reference. We do not charge for this service within our standard operating area.
