An introduction to espresso and milk aimed at the home enthusiast thinking of buying an espresso machine or wanting to get the most out of their espresso drinks at home.

This is a practical course, looking at the process of preparing a good espresso: using your machine and calibrating your grinder. The espresso element is followed by milk preparation: where we’ll learn how to steam and pour your favourite coffees found on an espresso menu. We’ll help you decipher coffee labels and learn what to look for when choosing a coffee to buy. Finally, we’ll look at basic equipment care and cleaning.
