It is no secret that Peter Barile’s Brew-Ha is one of Perth’s favourite Coffee Roasters and Cafes. What most Perth coffee lovers may not be aware of however is Brew-Ha run a regular Barista School on Wednesday evening’s from 5pm to 7.30pm and Saturday mornings from 10am to 12.30pm.
Brew-Ha Barista Training School
Brew Ha Barista School aims to teach people how to grind and dose coffee, to get the best flavour in a shot, then how to froth milk and make your favourite coffee; cappuccinos, lattes, flat whites and macchiato. It is specifically targeted at home espresso machine users but is also is a valuable beginners course for people who would like to pursue a career or work opportunities as a barista.
The practical part of the course is conducted on 3 single-group machines and one 3-group machine which means typical classes of 5 are very hands on. Working on commercial machines ensures that once students understand how these works they can get the most out of their domestic machine with ease.
While classes of 5 are preferred Brew-Ha regularly welcomes larger group bookings; perfect for team building, corporate rewards, bucks or hens nights or just a group of friends getting out and trying something a little different.
What does the Brew-Ha Barista Training School Involve?
A typical Brew-Ha Barista Training session would start with and introduction to Brew-Ha, what they stand for and how they do things including a tour around the Brew-Ha roaster and factory.
This is followed by a theory section where students are taught about coffee and provided important information that they can take home with them.
The best part of the school, the hands on coffee making, starts with working the grinder to infusing shots to making coffee with heated milk until the students are making amazingly good coffee.
The class wraps up with a lesson on how to clean and maintain your coffee machine and question time where students can discuss how what they have learnt can be specifically applied to their home coffee maker/espresso machine (if they have one).
The Brew-Ha Barista Training school is defiantly upbeat yet down to earth to ensure people are made to feel comfortable. Without fail most people feel under pressure and concentrate intently once they get to the milk frothing section so this is where the “Wobble test” is slotted in; where students are made to carry their expertly made cappuccinos around without the coffee spilling out over the cup and keeping the froth sitting properly on top.
Brew-Ha coffee is simply too good to waste so there is also an unwritten rule that any coffees student make can be consumed which typically leads to hyperactivity by the time each student has had 2 or 3 cups.
Brew-Ha is Barista School costs $110.00 per person and payment can be made on the day.
