coffee courses

Kaffeine is regarded as one of the leading cafes in the U.K. for the quality of the espresso coffee we serve every day and our baristas are regarded as some of the best in the business. Our team are all professionals with an in-depth knowledge of coffee and a minimum of three years experience on an espresso machine. These courses will allow you into the world of the working barista, teaching you either latte art skills or, working with you in a one on one class.

Courses are held at our new store at 15 Eastcastle Street, W1T 3AY from 7 pm to approx. 9.30 pm. You will be trained and working on the Victoria Arduino Black Eagle Gravimetric espresso machine, one of only three in the U.K. and currently rated as the best espresso machine in the world.

If you are attending, we recommend you have a bite to eat beforehand, though we will provide you with light snacks from our menu.

We will also provide you with a handout based on the class with notes and tips and tricks to take home with you, with brew recipes for the most popular filter coffee styles including aeropress, French press, V60 and cold brew.

latte art classes

Have you ever wondered ‘how do they do that?’ The picture of a fern (rosetta), the tulip or the love heart on top of your coffee? How do they make it look so simple? Well, hours of practice helps, but also being taught by other professionals helps too. If you have your own espresso machine at home, or just wish to have some fun and learn how to do it, then our specialised latte art course is for you.

In this course we cover the basics of espresso, and then really go full on into milk production, temperatures, microfoam, pouring and artwork. This very hands on course, where for at least half the lesson you will be pouring your own latte art or coaching others along the way, is a great way to master the base knowledge of latte art so you can use it at home or get started in your own cafe.
