The instructor was fantastic - he presented the information in a fun and easy comprehensible way.

This was a fun class where my husband and I learned so much! My husband is an avid coffee drinker with a future goal of opening a small coffee shop however we had no fundamentals. This class was the perfect intro and more to knowing important details about how to make good coffee. We learned everything from the different types of coffees and roasts to learning how to work the machine and making different types of lattes. Loved that our class size was small -6 and therefore we had tons of opportunity to practice. Our instructor, Joseph, broke everything down simply and made the class fun. Would definitely do another class from barista academy.

So much fun! Perfect balance between some coffee background and hands on experience. Ended up making the best espresso shots and lattes ever! Definitely recommend this and I'm going to be going back for some more courses!

What You'll Get


Much like a massage from a cat, coffee helps people wake up, enlivens morning routines, and can be painful against bare skin. Keep a lid on your morning with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a two-hour coffee-preparation course at Seattle Barista Academy in Kent (a $175 value). Courses run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays only.

Helmed by espresso trailblazer Bob Burgess, the Seattle Barista Academy's seasoned baristas transform home brewers into coffee connoisseurs with two-hour coffee-preparation courses laden with professional tips and tricks. An initial tasting session teaches students how to evaluate flavors, and an exploration of different brewing methods exhibits how coffee is affected by its preparation and early childhood. Topics for crafting the perfect cup—such as using the correct water, choosing the proper flavors, and the link between the grind and preparation method—further improve each student's coffee-making repertoire. A hands-on demonstration caps off each course, allowing students to practice several notable home-brewing approaches without staining new turtlenecks.

About Seattle Barista Academy


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. That's why for just less than a decade, Bob 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.
