Barista Basics & Latte Art Class
Join us for our 4 hour Barista Basics & Latte Art class on Saturdays from 10am-2pm.
We'll begin by meeting inside our flagship cafe in Capitol Hill, 1005 E Pike Street, where we’ll do a tour of our roasting and production facility.
From there we’ll head up to our training lab where we’ll talk about how to use the espresso machine and demonstrate pulling the perfect shot; focusing on proper dosing and tamping techniques. Each attendee will get hands-on experience pulling shots on our Kes van der Westen espresso machine – same one we use in all our cafes.
Break for Lunch – provided by Big Mario’s and included in the ticket price.
Next, we’ll go over the science and technique of steaming milk. We'll get into the nitty gritty of what happens when milk meets hot steam and practice how to produce the perfect milk texture to create latte art. We’ll work on the basics such as hearts and rosettas as well as the small details like orientation and symmetry of design.
All attendees with receive a bag of fresh-roasted Caffe Vita coffee, a 20% off coupon for in-store or online purchases, and a priceless wealth of coffee knowledge from our expert trainers.
The perfect gift for any coffee lover wanting to learn more!
