Our coffee training lab is a purpose-built facility in the basement of our South College Street café. It's kitted out with a fully functioning espresso bar—featuring our VA388 Black Eagle espresso machine and Mythos One grinders—as well as a custom 'brew bar' with a EK43 grinder and large selection of brewing equipment.
We have a range of coffee training courses designed for home coffee enthusiasts, as well as complete coffee novices. Also available are courses for professional baristas looking to hone their skills.
** Please note that we have recently retired our Slayer espresso machine and replaced it with a VA388 Black Eagle. This is a fantastic machine for training, but please accept our apologies for any confusion whilst we update our images.**
