“I really enjoyed this class and learnt so much in such a short amount of time. The only thing I found challenging about the course was being the only student in class that had no experience in working in a cafe or as a barista; but by the second and third day I gained so much confidence and learnt so much. Definitely recommend this course to anyone that’s interested in being a barista or just want to try something new and see where it takes you.” - 2021 Barista Skill Set Participant
