Barista Training

Beck and Call Coffee is home to the Albany Barista Academy, located in the heart of our roasting operation.

From seed to cup, every person in the specialty coffee supply chain plays a key role in producing a great cup of coffee and let’s be honest, the barista can make it or break it.

As industry experts, we are committed to building the skills and knowledge of working baristas and the home enthusiast.

Get hands on with us in a relaxed setting where mistakes are part of the fun. Groups are small and we keep theory to a minimum, so you get plenty of time on the tools.

  • The specialty coffee journey
  • Tools of the trade
  • Extraction diagnosis
  • Controlling the variables

  • Stretching that milk
  • Building espresso beverages
  • Cleaning and maintenance

Includes course notes, all the coffee you can drink and a bag of our local roast to take home.
