It's great! A bit hard to find given the ongoing construction on central ave S but it's totally worthwhile the effort Steve is super knowledgeable and patient and I felt like I learned so much in the three short hours!

The lady teaching the class was unsanitary! She obviously has no awareness of good food handling practices. She was constantly wiping her nose and face with her hands then proceeding to make coffee without once washing them. Unprofessional and gross.

In a business park, need to know what unit # . This was not mentioned in address which made it difficult to find.

When Alexa was going over directions and details, Bob was doing dishes, banging dishes around, making coffee...etc so it was VERY hard to hear and I actually missed a few of the directions because I couldn't hear her. I think you guys opened up late and were rushing to get everything together, which is fine but I'd rather wait an extra 10 min for everything to start then to have to try hearing important information over somebody in the background. Also at one point Alexa read directly from a manual, this was a little disappointing because it didn't feel exciting or engaging. Besides these two things we had an AWESOME time and we'd love to do this again!!!

From Our Editors

A poorly trained barista in front of a top-notch espresso machine is like an 8-year-old behind the wheel of a car—he has no idea the power before him, nor how to use it. Enter owner Bob Burgess—a specialty-beverage entrepreneur for more than 39 years—and his team at Seattle Barista Academy. For just less than a decade, Burgess and company have taught intense hands-on training programs that focus on crafting coffee, espresso, cappuccino, macchiato, and mocha drinks using advanced techniques and equipment. From learning the life cycle of a coffee bean to mastering grinding methods, extraction techniques, and latte art, students walk away with a wealth of knowledge that makes them more employable. Like deeply unpopular one-man shows, the classes consist of one-on-one attention, since class sizes are limited to no more than seven participants.

Seattle Barista Academy's staff members—all of whom have been professional baristas at some point in their careers—have up to 19 years of experience in the field. These sessions provide clients with the coffee-making and marketing knowledge they need to grow their coffee cart, kiosk, or fort built from coffee beans.
