The Importance of Coffee Training

Coffee training sessions are one of the most valuable forms of education you can provide your staff, resulting in improved product knowledge, quality and consistency. Our training sessions offer anything from basic to advanced classes, depending on your team's experience level. If you let us know the experience level of your staff ahead of time, we'll cater the lesson specifically for them!


    Our Training Sessions

    Basic coffee training

    Best suited to beginners, those with some industry experience or experienced barista's new to using Merlo Coffee.

    Content covered includes the bean, equipment, quality extraction, milk texturising, pouring and end-of-day cleaning.

    Advanced coffee training

    Best suited to experienced barista's.

    ‘Train the Trainer’
