Espresso Yourself!

Just took my last course of the year – I just learnt how to make coffee!  I LOOOOOVE making coffee!  It’s such a skill.  It’s fun, it’s a bit harder than bar-tending, but it’s just so cool!  I’m looking forward to the day where I’m making coffee on the beach!  I’m actually excited to do a few more courses in espresso making – namely, coffee art!  (once i find a good course, I’ll post it here – watch this space!)

So, i’ve actually completed quite a few courses:Delicious Espresso

  • Responsible Service of Alcohol
  • Senior (now called Applied) First Aid
  • Construction White Card
  • Responsible Gambling Services
  • Bar Skills
  • Prepare Serve Espresso Coffee

And, that’s it for the year.  I think it’s safe to say that I enjoyed the courses at Sydney Bar School the most.

You can find the link here:

I had Cate as my trainer in both Bar Skills and Espresso Making – and she’s fantastic!  (I actually signed up for the Expresso course because the Bar Skills class was so much fun!)

She loves and really cares about hospitality – so you get a great fun education with her.  I give her five out of five stars – no question!

Both classes are taught in the same room (and really easy to get to in Sydney – right on George Street)  – fully equipped with espresso makers and taps – and you use real coffee and milk and pour real beer… so, it’s like you’re actually doing it on the job.

I highly recommend Sydney Bar School for any backpackers out there who want to travel around Australia!
