Incredible espresso doesn't just happen by accident. 2011 Canadian Barista Champion Josh Hockin of Transcend Coffee will teach you the techniques that experienced baristas use in this skill-building class.
This workshop is designed for the home enthusiast or eager new barista looking to hone their espresso making abilities. In this one hour hands-on class, you'll learn the fundamentals of pulling the ultimate shot of espresso. You'll leave with the skills to:
- Evenly dose and distribute the portafilter
- Improve your tamping technique
- Visually evaluate espresso extraction
- Trouble-shoot and fine-tune your coffee
This is a beginner class, but all levels of ability are welcome.
Participants who feel confident in their barista abilities are encouraged to register for Barista Skills Workshop: Level Two, which will follow this workshop.
