A barista is an espresso machine “coffee artist” who promotes coffee consumption by preparing and serving a variety of coffee drinks and other beverages along with pastries and cookies. A bartender is specialized more in serving alcoholic drinks and preparing or even inventing cocktails.


The goal of the course is to provide participants with all the necessary skills needed to work as professional Baristas and/or Bartenders. The knowledge they will gain is both practical and theoretical, as participants are offered the expertise to practice efficiently their profession through hands-on training and at the same time they receive answers to all the questions and queries they may have. The course also covers the domains of hygiene, safety and the related regulations.
