Update: Due to demand our coffee school facility is now being made solely available to wholesale coffee customers of Caber. We would like to thank you for your interest and, if you are considering starting up a business of your own, you are most welcome to ask us for information on equipment, pop in for a chat to sample some of blends etc. Due to demand, however, we will no longer be able to provide training to the public, or to non-product customers.
Caber Coffee are delighted to announce the launch of our own, purpose built, Barista training academy, the "Caber Coffee School", the most Northerly coffee academy in the UK. We provide a range of training options at very cost-effective prices. Training is conducted by our knowledgeablestaff using the latest, top-of-the-range SanRemo equipment and is suitable for a complete novice through to an experienced Barista looking to sharpen their skills on the finest espresso making equipment.
Class sizes are small (a maximum of 6 trainees per session) to deliver the greatest value for money and lots of "hands-on" time for each trainee to make lots of coffee! You're free to work on either of our espresso machines – we’re more than happy for you to watch and learn from other trainees or get stuck in yourself on our other machine, it is very much a hands-on course.
From understanding where your coffee is grown and how it is roasted, through to cleaning your machine at the end of a day, every one of our classes is comprehensive and delivers practical results.
All of the skills we teach on our equipment are transferrable to any espresso making equipment.
To enquire further about our classes, or to make a booking please contact us.
We will be in touch to arrange date and time of course.
Ideal for beginners, those looking to open a café or restaurant and experienced catering staff looking to add a skill to their CV.
Much like the Basic class you will receive one-on-one training and be free to use our other espresso machine throughout the class meaning you’ll get lots of chances to make great coffee! What your milk should look like, how to get the perfect texture through your milk, starting a pour, creating a design on your coffee – it’s lots of fun and there’s absolutely no limit on how many drinks you can make! Refreshments & snacks provided throughout.
Designed as a “train the trainer” course we go in-depth into every element of making the perfect coffee. From understanding how an espresso machine works, specifying the right machine and grinder, looking at blend & roast profiles, sampling different blends throughout the session to examining how cleaning and maintenance can affect your drink quality and what you’ll need to expect from routine maintenance this is a comprehensive course that leaves nothing out. You have free use of all of our equipment and able to make as many coffees as you like!
For whatever reason you might just want to have free use of our facility and the equipment we have available. Unusual meeting location? Just want to get peace from the coffee shop to try out different coffees or to practice your latte art pouring technique?
