This is the workshop where you'll want to be Top Cat on the espresso machine. I mean, how hard can it be to pour a tulip? Well, actually not very, so long as you have a good understanding of what is and isn't working and most importantly, why. That's where our expertise helps. Then it's all about practising.
Presenting a beautifully poured milk-based drink is a bit like plating an amazing array of just-cooked food; the aesthetic is as integral as the taste. Heston Blumenpants may have given his name to a range of espresso machines, but can he pour as well as he plates up? Hmmm... I wonder...
So here's the breakdown of what you'll be doing:
- Revision of perfect espresso as a base
- Milk - theory and understanding
- Pouring technique
- Milk texturing - do's and don'ts
- Pouring 3 basic patterns - heart, tulip & rosetta
- Milk sharing
- video analysis
(Course duration: 2 hours approx)
Based in our bespoke 1st floor barista training facility, we provide a practical, hands-on session. More than anything, it's all about having fun - so why not give it a go? You'll end up smiling like the cat that's got the cream!
*NOTE: It's important that you've had some experience of working an espresso machine and steaming milk. Ideally you'll have taken a barista course, as we'll assume you've had some practice. In this way, you'll really get the most from this course.
