Home barista

Have you always wondered how to make your favorite cup of coffee yourself at home?

During this Home Barista workshop, we will elaborate on different types of espresso-based coffee drinks, ranging from espresso, americano, cappuccino, latte macchiato, and more. To be able to pour your favorite drink, you will have a practical session to perfect your skills in extracting a perfect shot of espresso. This entails adjusting and setting the coffee grinder, and tasting and recognizing the flavors in an espresso.

Based on this perfectly brewed espresso, you will learn the techniques in frothing milk to create your lovely milky coffee drink. At the end of the workshop, you will also be introduced to the basics of latte art and get a chance to pour a cappuccino with a heart yourself.
