A great time, the basic class is usually packaged with those wanting to learn to get a job. The coffee art course had a lot more space as the class size halved. Would definitely recommend for those who want to buy a machine at home, get a job, or learn more about coffee.
I enjoyed the barista course. I felt however that way too many people attended on the day (24) even though it was on a Thursday and the trainers struggled at times to provide assistance to anyone who needed it. We also didn't learn how to make every coffee on the menu. The course should I believe be an all day one (5 hours is not enough) and the class smaller (10-15) for a more personalised attention. Overall it was a good experience and I learnt the basics to make a good coffee.
