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!

Very interesting and enjoyable
We learnt a lot about coffee and how to properly make one, in a friendly atmosphere. Thanks for the great experience! We've used our new skills right away at home and finally get good coffee with our espresso machine :)
Excellent afternoon, which I really enjoyed. Friendly and knowledgeable hosts; made to feel welcome. Learnt loads and very pleased to have completed their session. An attendance certificate would have been a bonus, especially for people looking to a career as a barista.
Jess was really knowledgable and it was super interesting to learn about coffee roasting, flavour profiles right through to espresso and latte art. Being in a group of 4 meant you got lots of time to ask questions and try things out.
Had an amazing time and picked up some really helpful info. Great coffee and great company
Great experience. Fun and engaging. Learnt so much! Would definitely recommend. Christina was a very good host!
The Be a Barista experience with Odd Kin coffee was great. My friends and I have enjoyed all parts of the experience. We have learnt how to brew delicious espresso shots and steam milk to perfection, while learning about all things coffee :)
Great atmosphere, informative fun and tasty!
A really great course. We learned lots about different types of coffee beans, how they are collected and roasted, the tastes of different types of coffee, how to dial in espresso and how to make latte art. We would highly recommend.
Great fun and learnt a lot
We had a fantastic time with Jess on Sunday. She was informative and fun. Loved learning about how coffee is made and tasting the selection of coffees. My latte art wasn't very good but I'll keep on practicing at home. I'd highly recommend for any coffee lover. You won't be disappointed!
Loved it.. Loved it.. Loved it
Jess was an amazing host, really knew her stuff but was also really personable and she made the session fun and interesting. We had a great time and have already recommended to others. Thanks Jess :)
Really interesting, lots of fun, great hosts and all round a great afternoon. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Great experience for my Dad and I, a super friendly atmosphere and a nice size group so we still got some direct help with grinding and steaming milk correctly. Would highly recommend even if you don't love coffee!
It was a very good experience and learnt a lot about coffee. I wasn't very good at the art thought but can now appreciate the effort and skill it takes.
One pointer would be to maybe have some nibbles or food to buy as I know now I am a bit sensitive to caffeine and needed some food in me.
Other than that would recommend!
Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Really attentive hosts and Snoopy and dog made it even better. I'd recommnd to anyone. We learnt a lot and even won a prize
Informal & relaxed (good); friendly host made it enjoyable and I was happy with what I learned. Met expectations.
This experience is great for coffee snobs and those who want to play at being a barista and learning latte art! Both Al and Chrissi were so well informed, and it was so nice to see how an independent coffee roasters / cafe run and the relationships they have with the coffee farmers predominantly in South America. They were funny, passionate and interesting and my friends are all desperate to go! One tip - eat a good breakfast before you go as you drink a LOT of coffee!
Learnt so much! Very informative and fun. Highly recommend. Thank you to this hosts!
This was a really fun and informative couple of hours spent learning the basics of the origins of coffee, roasting, making a delicious espresso and latte art. It was a lot to squeeze in but the group size was small so there was lots opportunity for hands on experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole 2.5hours and would definitely recommend this if you have any interest in coffee no matter what your level of knowledge or experience.
I bought this as a gift for my partner as we wanted to figure out how to make best use of our coffee machine. It was brilliant. So informative, I never knew how intricate the art of coffee was, and it was great learning everything from coffee bean types to how to perfect our latte art. A really fun session, and Christina and Al are super knowledgeable. And today we made an awesome cup of coffee! Thanks both
Great people, learned a lot. I got everything I wanted from this experience and more!
Amazing experience and staff. Made 10/10 by Snoopy the dog too! My partner loved his birthday activity. Thank you!
Had a great time and learnt so much as well! Thank you ☺️
Really good intro to the basics of espresso and latte art. Thanks again
Such a great experience with great hosts. Lovely people with a lovely business and passion for coffee. Would recommend to anyone! Thanks :)

Throughly enjoyable experience, very knowledgable hosts and passionate about what they do!
Really informative course run by attentive, encouraging & incredibly friendly people. Would go back & do it again!
Great fun for anyone with even a slight interest in coffee. Learn how coffee is grown and how to properly taste coffee slurping loudly from a spoon! Making coffee majors on espresso using top quality equipment. Knowledgable personable and coffee passion hosts.
Great event, we both really enjoyed it!
Had a lovely time. Hosts for very welcoming and friendly, the session was educational and would definitely recommend. Very enjoyable experience
When you enter the place you can feel those people put their hearth in what the are doing. I like that atmosphere. I enjoyed my time there. I learnt what I need and now I have better understanding about how to prepare my coffee and basic skills to prepare my late :) Thank you guys for the knowledge, the experience and all positive vibes :)
This experience was even better than expected it was chilled, informative but not information overload! Really
Bought for my boyfriend for a Christmas present because he loves coffee. I am not a coffee drinker but I had a fantastic time - so informative and fun. Now a coffee convert!
Had a great evening and learnt lots - thank you!
Highly recommend - fantastic course.
Was a brilliant experience!!! Can't recommend it enough to anyone that likes coffee!!!
Really fun and informative session hosted by great people.
Christina was both engaging and very knowledgeable. This was a fun evening and think all of us left with wider understanding of coffee and the coffee brewing process. Interactive, lighthearted & enjoyable!
Great experience - really interesting to learn more about not only the coffee roasting process but also how to make the best espresso and latte. Really chilled environnement, great fun and the shop dog was a wonderful addition!
It was good fun and very informative.
Had a really great time! Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys coffee and wants to learn more. Plenty of coffee to dink and some good laughs what more could you want!
We had an excellent experience learning about coffee from Christina. Me and my friend were fortunate to have ~3 hours just us with her, as some other people had dropped out. We enjoyed the informal nature of the session, and found it really interesting to hear about the background and science of the modern coffee that we drink. The session also included lots of variety and practical components: a tasting session, trying to make the perfect espresso, and latte art! We would highly recommend! :)
Absolutely loved the class and have recommended to all my coffee friends. The class was fun, interesting and very engaging. Linsey was patient and funny that made the whole process of learning even more captivating. The coffee is top quality too 🎉
This experience was amazing. Christina our host was able to answer all of our questions perfectly and was really knowledgeable on coffee. This experience is perfect for any coffee lovers and my boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Excellent morning out, very interesting and good fun
Had such a great time yesterday! Christina was really friendly and knowledgable, and made the whole experience fun. It was super informative too - we learnt a lot of interesting facts. I loved being able to try the different coffees & see how they vary. Can’t wait to put everything we learned into practise!
Really great course and host knew her stuff. Touched upon all aspects of coffee from how’s it grown right through to end product. Was nice to have a go on the coffee machine and makes you appreciate how tricky it is to make the heart shape in the milk.
Exactly what I was looking for.. great host… Thanks!
Both presenters really understood their subject, any questions they couldn’t answer, they were very honest rather than try and blag it. Personally I learnt loads , some of which I will be able to use when making coffee at home.
We had a great time. Thanks so much Lyndsey and Jess! We can’t wait to try out what we learned at home.
So interesting and we learnt so much. I'm excited to perfect my skills at home. Fab coffee and lots of fun.
We definitely recommend if you are into coffee!
Fun experience, learning about the roastery and then how to do espresso and latte art. The hosts were great, fun, and knowledgeable.
Kevin is a great batista and the coffee was amazing. We learned a lot
Excellent lesson on expresso coffee brewing and latte art basics.
Great session with friendly hosts
Excellent experience- very interesting and learned some useful home-barista skills. Kevin and Lindsay were great hosts and I’d thoroughly recommend this to others
Excellent afternoon with a great trainer. You really learn a lot and get to be hands on with the whole process. Enjoyed the coffee too! It’s a lot harder than it looks. Now understand the value of buying coffee from an expert :-)
Really enjoyed this coffee workshop - Kevin was great, he made it all super fun, was very informative and clearly is very passionate about coffee! We really enjoyed trying all of the different coffees and trying the latte art. Good value for money and would definitely come back/ recommend this to friends. Kevin definitely made the whole thing so big thank you to him!
Fantastic evening learning how to taste and brew coffee. Really helped my confidence and knowledge in the whole coffee brewing process!
I would recommend this experience to anyone who has an interest in coffee and looking to learn more. I did it with my Dad and we both had a blast. The only downside as I was a bit jittery after the 5+ coffee's I had but that was all of my own doing, I just couldn't stop drinkin ght coffee as it was so good.
Really enjoyable and informative
A really friendly and relaxed environment. Kevin and Lindsey were very knowledgeable. They were really engaging and patient, taking the time to focus on everyone within the group throughout the session. I left the session feeling more confident with my barista skills and with the determination to perfect my latte art!
Very knowledgable hosts who were more than happy to share their passion. Will be recommending to anyone I can !
This was a great course and already making much better use of my home machine, with actual drinkable coffee! The guys were very patient and knowledgable.
