A complete path that begins with the examination of the differences among the various brewing methods and the several different techniques. Then, is the moment for the practice and the experiments, with the use of the refractometer and the tests about the main concepts of brewing: ideal cup, turbolence, TDS, and so on. For each tool (V60, Aeropress, Chemex, French press) we do many practical tests, also varying the parameters as grinding, temperature, paper or metal filters, and so on. All with a selection of different specialties and farm coffee…
And, at the end: Cold brew for all!!

We attended the two-day Barista course (advanced level) and its really cool and awesome. Our instructor-Gabriele shares all the techniques and secrets to make a perfect espresso and cappuccino, plus the coffee art which every participants were so excited and enjoyed every hands-on. As part of the Advanced level course, Gabriele also gave us a tour inside their processing plant. A highly recommended tour if you're visiting Florence both for individual who's looking for a career in coffee industry or simply Coffee lovers.
Great experience ! It's fun, very interactive , the trainers are really interested that you learn and practice a lot, before you apply for your certificate. If you never worked in a coffee shop or you never experience how to make a great cappuccino and espresso this is the right place to try . Can't wait to get back and learn some more ! Thank you all !
Had an amazing two days here going all the way from the roasting room, blends and the theory, but most importantly a lot of practice at making good espressos and cappuccinos with assistance from the instructors, through to the SCA exams. Very friendly and helpful instructors and I can highly recommend the Espresso Academy! A great experience and great knowledge gained. Thank you to all at Espresso Academy and Mokaflor, I highly recommend you all!
