Bar Practice Sessions

"Practice doesn't make perfect. But it does make progress." 

Bar Practice Sessions are suitable for:

  • Home Baristas looking to practice the craft of coffee in a commercial espresso bar setting

  • Coffee Enthusiasts without an espresso machine to practice at home

  • Coffee-trained individuals (e.g. Graduates of Basic Barista Course, former baristas) looking to refresh and sharpen your coffee-crafting skills

Prerequisite: Individuals signing up for Bar Practice Sessions should possess fundamental barista skills.                 

*This is by no means a full barista course. If you’re looking to learn basic barista skills, we recommend TCR Basic Barista Course.
