Whether you are a seasoned barista or new to specialty coffee join us at our Brooklyn brew bar to learn a bit more about how we get the wonderful flavors of our beans into your cup.

Think only the barista is capable of unlocking the mysteries of espresso? Think again. In our introductory espresso class you will learn the make-up of a proper shot and how to grind, tamp, and pull one of your very own. We’ll also review espresso drinks and how to texture milk for the smoothest and sweetest lattes and cappuccinos. Classes for intermediate and advanced students are available by appointment.
