Barista Basics Course

Barista Course Australia (STC) guides you through the process of making fantastic barista coffee. We know that you need to train on a commercial machine so that’s what we have. So come to us for good prices and the professional training you need to break into the hospitality industry.

Barista Basics Coffee Training

Barista Basics – An Introduction To Coffee, is a perfect course for home baristas who just want to know how to make amazing coffee. It’s also a good way to start your career in a cafe.  Barista Course Australia teaches all the basics of maintaining and using an espresso coffee machine and grinder. What’s more, you’ll learn in a relaxed environment with a small group. That allows you plenty of access to the all-important equipment. Naturally, we’ll provide loads of milk and coffee. All of this means that you’ll come away from the course with all the skills you need to make a great cup of coffee that will really impress your friends or customers.

What You’ll Learn in Barista Basics

Our trainers are experienced baristas and coffee enthusiasts who know how to make learning about coffee fun.  While there is some theory to learn, most of the course is a hands-on experience.  So you’ll pick up the barista basics you need to master the art of serving perfect coffee by actually making it. 

The course includes

  • How to froth and texture various types of milk using a steam wand
  • Understanding the espresso coffee machine & its parts
  • How to make all espresso-based beverages
  • Operating a coffee grinder
  • How to improve flavour by using the espresso extractor
  • Cleaning and maintenance of the espresso machine 
  • Coffee bean storage & selection  

Barista Basics Certification

Once you’ve done the course you will receive a certificate of completion.  If you are required to do a government-certified coffee course for your job, then the nationally recognised Barista Pro- Complete Barista Training Course is a better option.

Our Coffee Courses

As well as our Barista Pro course, we offer training in latte art. That’s because if you want customers to keep coming back, not only should their cup of coffee taste good, it should look professional. Our emphasis on practical training will give you the edge when it comes to looking for work because the first thing any cafe manager will ask you to do is make a cup of coffee. That’s exactly what we teach you to do.

What Our Students Say

Jacob Marks

can’t find a coffee as perfectly crafted as this one, not even in my home town in Italy. Its flavour is so rich, intense and pure that any other I get elsewhere tastes like bitter water to me. I also love the waitresses and coffee makers, they’re so kind and good-humoured they already lift me up even before the coffee… Also the internet is so darn good and fast, and the seating outside really pleasurable. I just hope they’ll open a more central shop soon!
