Barista training

As Australia’s coffee culture continues to grow, there is a firm focus on the Barista.  The availability of fresh, quality roasted product and state of the art espresso machinery brings the focus to how the coffee is made.  While taste is a very personal matter, when it comes to the perfect espresso, much responsibility lies in the hands of the Barista.
