Born to brew.

Crafting a good coffee isn’t a natural gift, it’s an acquired skill. To understand techniques and processes then put them into practice can only be learnt from a passionate barista offering a bespoke experience. With Mr Barista, we show you how to refine the ritual. 

Our barista courses will be facilitated by our head barista training expert, Brett Barfoot. Brett’s been crafting coffee for the Gold Coast devoted for over a decade, he has also worked internationally in Berlin and Singapore.

Our Barista courses offer you the opportunity to delve deeply into the exotic world of coffee; we share the care, attention and love that goes into crafting a pure cup of coffee experience. 

Our intimate class sizes include plenty of practical instruction to put the skills you learn into practice on our machine. Together, we hone your competence while building your confidence to brew like the best. 

With Mr Barista, we empower you to master the art of coffee. 

Making a consistently delicious
coffee is about refining your
process – there’s a whole
lot more to coffee than just
pressing a button on a machine.
