Are you a coffee enthusiast? A budding barista? If so, this experience will provide the perfect introduction to the art of making good coffee on an espresso machine. And who better to host the workshop than our epic head team at Odd Kin.

Your caffeine-fuelled experience will start as your host introduces you to the basics of roasting, the origin of coffee and theory and science of espresso.

You'll also get an opportunity to slurp and compare different coffees to discover more about your palette and how you may prefer your brew. Before moving on to demonstrations of how to properly dial in a grinder - the importance of correct dosing and getting the right yield and grind setting.

They'll also demonstrate how to identify a good shot, how to taste-test and help you in your quest to extract the perfect espresso.

Your coffee adventure continues as you explore how to texture milk for different drinks and get the best tips and tricks for creating that all-important micro-foam.

Finally, you’ll move on to the basics of latte art – we guarantee you'll be pouring a beautiful heart by the end of the workshop… the first step on your barista journey!
