WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR 5-DAY BARISTA COURSE

Likewise, if you have barista experience and want to acquire more practical and theoretical knowledge in a barista environment, this is just the course you’re looking for.
To give you an idea of the importance of coffee, it is the second most traded commodity in the world, behind petroleum. Every year, the world consumes around 400 billion cups of coffee!
One man in particular who also understands and appreciates its importance is the coffee and barista mastermind behind your course, Fabio Milani. Fabio is a coffee expert and an international coffee consultant with over 10 years of experience. Fabio is also one of the pioneers of the modern-day phenomena – coffee flair. You won’t find a more knowledgeable coffee expert if you tried!
Fabio has put all of his knowledge and experience into the 5-Day Barista Course so you can gain an in-depth understanding of the journey of the coffee bean. You’ll be guided through every step of the way, from the moment the fruit is picked, through the roasting process; to when it hits your cup. You will also learn practical skills regarding milk handling, latte art, customer service and even touch upon barista marketing. Finally, EBS Rome will also host seminars about brewing methods, coffee flair and coffee mixology for you.
