Barista Training on Commercial Espresso Machines

Learn how to make extra profit from your espresso machine by making your staff fully trained Barista's. Learn about drinks such as Machiato, Doppio, flavoured latte and even Iced Coffee. Cappuccino art is very popular - and this luxury flourish requires just a simple technique to perfect.

In Italy making coffee with an espresso machine is considered an occupation, and those people who have practised and learnt all the skills required to make and keep a consistent quality espresso are known as Barista's. The skills required include the ability to assess the extraction time for each espresso shot, and adjust this time by varying the grind setting on the espresso grinder/doser. Knowledge of the origins of coffee, and details of the specific espresso blend used, are neccesary to keep the customer interested and informed. Use of the steam arm to foam and texture milk is essential, this skill is often overlooked making every cappuccino like a latte! Finally cleaning and care of equipment is an essential tool for every Barista to ensure every single shot of espresso is of the optimum quality.

At Pennine you can purchase an interactive CD-Rom which guides you through all the skills required to be a complete Barista, including beginner and proffesional sections, video descriptions of different skills and a test at the end to see what you remember. Priced at £17.99 + VAT, this is an invaluable tool for owner operators and staff training.

The Barista CD Rom goes into great detail about all aspects of coffee, not just making it!

After working through the Barista CD, you can take a multi choice test on the content you have viewed, helping you re-cap on the important issues. If you are good like me, you should pass the test with full marks!
