The workshop starts with an introduction to the background of Colombia’s coffee industry and the different styles of coffee that are produced in each Colombian coffee growing region. Then its time to roll-up your sleeves as you learn the inside secrets of operating the espresso machine, usually the most expensive piece of equipment in a café.

Learn how to make various styles of coffee from espresso to macchiato to americano, cappuccino and more. At each step of the way our Barista will guide and encourage you to build your confidence in each coffee style.

But it’s not all about the espresso machine. You’ll also quickly review alternative methods of preparing coffee including using a French Press, V60 and Chemex – because it’s nice to know how to make café quality coffee even if you don’t own an expensive machine.

The Toucan Barista Workshop is essential for anyone who wants to get a foot in the door in the coffee industry. What could look better on your CV – barista training, undertaken in Colombia, the home of some of the world’s best coffee? However the workshop is also great if you just want to impress your family and friends with your new coffee preparation skills.

The Toucan Barista Workshop is held on demand and attendance is limited to a maximum of 4 people.
