What you'll do

Coffee is a BIG DEAL in NZ. We'll learn 5 ways to make extraordinary coffee using NZ's best roasts. We'll learn about the coffee beans themselves using cupping techniques, and delve into the various ways of extracting flavour from them. We'll get into milk art from stovetop plungers to machine steam. We'll also learn to pull amazing espresso shots using the astounding Rocket R Nine One which not only allows for manual pressure profiling of each shot but can be used to create great fantastic specialty drinks, from lavender lattes to salted caramel cappuccinos. You'll develop your own signature drink using a range innovative ingredients.
