Home Barista

For twenty eight years I have been asked “how can I make this coffee at home?”.  All I could do was shrug and admit you can’t.  You can’t because the technology we use is not available in any home machine.  Now I am ready to teach home users to make true Vivace espresso in their kitchens because Breville has created the Dual Boiler espresso machine. (See my blog if you are a techie)  They have also produced a conical grinder as well.

Students will learn theory, extraction and latte art pouring the same as the pro class, but we will practice a lot on the Breville equipment as well. The Breville review is in my blog.

This course is offered as a two-day intensive.
