Barista Training for your business and at home

Moonroast Coffee offers complimentary barista training to all our wholesale customers, when we supply your house blend. Training is tailored to your business requirement.

We also run a course for budding home baristas. Please follow the links below to find out more about the barista training that suits you.     

We use a 2 group commercial La Spaziale espresso machine for all training at the roastery.

Ambassador and Barista skills training

Training takes place in two stages, at the roastery and at your premises.

 At a glance:

  • Freshness, storage and packaging
  • Operating the espresso machine
  • Setting up the grinder
  • Tamping and packing
  • Extraction: avoiding under/over extraction
  • Assessing taste
  • Milk steaming
  • Temperature and texture
  • The coffee menu
  • Cleaning and maintenance 


Both Ambassador and Barista Training are about taking your staff step by step through the techniques required to serve the best cup of coffee to your customers. Barista Training at your premises focuses on barista skills, your equipment, coffee menus and the customer experience. 

Ambassador Training takes place at the roastery and includes a roasting demonstration in a Probat 12 roaster and focuses as much on the origin of the coffee, roasting, flavour and roast profiles to give a much more in depth understanding of the coffee. We insist that at least one key member of your staff comes to roastery for Ambassador training but all staff members are welcome to attend.

For both the style is informal and hands on allowing all staff present to ask as many questions as they like about the coffee, equipment and techniques and have the chance to practice what they are learning in real time.

Free top up training is then recommended at regular intervals to keep skill levels high. 

Home Barista Course

At a glance:

  • Coffee varieties, harvesting and how and why we roast

An enlightening and fun course for the budding home barista, offering basic professional training and covering coffee backgrounds, roasting, barista techniques and latte art to help you get the best from your equipment.
