Have you ever wanted to learn the fine craft that is latte art? Now, you can. For the first time ever, European Bartender School is offering Barista Academy Courses! With our help, we will bring a little flair into your coffee.

The history of the barista

Did you know that the term “barista” originates from the Italian word for “bartender”? (Just don’t go expecting a negroni!) Instead of serving alcoholic drinks, the role of the barista is to serve hot, usually coffee-related, non-alcoholic beverages.

We’ve all been tired in the morning and in dire need of a pick-me-up; all you can hear is your local café calling and your barista waiting with your favourite Americano.

Going to a coffee house is a pastime that has been around for years. Even the earliest reference to a coffee house dates as far back as 1530! That’s centuries of baristas pouring cup after cup of our favourite coffee and keeping the world turning.
