What you'll do

We will take the process of making gourmet coffees from the beginning to the end.

We will start with the beans. We will select and experiment with several bean types from our traditional dark roast blend of espresso beans to our lighter roasts like the Farm Girl Blend. All can make a great cup of coffee or latte but you need to know the differences and the origins of the beans to understand the flavoring.

Grinding is next. We will learn how to use a professional grinder. Look for mistakes in settings and even how to disassemble the basic parts of the grinder.

Milk and its use is important. We will talk and experience ways to make milk be more frothy for a cappuccino vs a latte with less froth. Position and technique are important here.

The espresso machine may look intimidating but don't let that scare you. This is where the water, grinds and pressure come together for the perfect shot. We will use the machine to froth the milk as well.

Lastly we will finish the coffee with a cocktail of flavor shots like Creme Brulee or Dark mocha latte.

When finished you will be a pro barista and will appreciate much more your friends behind the counter & your latte!
Other things to note
We offer decaf and regular espresso so don't be afraid of the jitters!

My name is Shawn.

After traveling to Europe over the past 10 years with my family, I decided to open a Coffee and Dessert Shop called Gelato Brothers. I have spent much time making hand pulled espresso and would love to share the best techniques and practices of being a barista with you.

The small things make the difference in getting a good shot of espresso for your latte or our world famous Brogato (double shot espresso pour over on Stracciatella gelato).

I look forward to meeting you and taking you the full barista experience at Gelato Brothers!
