EAT, DRINK + BE MERRY THE ART OF PERFECT COFFEE THE SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT coffee. Something many of us partake in every weekend, if we haven’t already found our favourite café that serves it beautifully, every time. But there’s more to the perfect coffee than you may think. Adrian Nicholas, head of the Espresso Coffee School, would tell you that it’s the barista who really makes the difference between a coffee that blows your socks off, and one that leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. Espresso Coffee School is one of Auckland’s longest running barista training facilities. Their vision is to produce exceptional baristas who continuously increase the quality of coffee being served to New Zealand’s discerning coffee drinkers. “You’ll come away with a real passion for the art of the espresso”, enthuses Adrian. If you’re looking to go pro, the Professional Barista Course is the way to go. Experienced tutors teach small classes both the practical and theory-based parts of espresso making, in a real café environment. And they even encourage their students to come back and practice after the course is over. If becoming a barista isn’t your dream but you still want to know how to make great coffee, then it’s the In-Home Tutorial you’re after. A professional barista comes to you, and in two hours will turn you into a coffee-making genius using your own machine. Your future guests will love you for it.
