Group Training

Groups we train

As roasters we roast award winning Karvan Coffee from the finest Arabica beans around the world. Each batch is screened, cupped and tested by our roasters and gradually refined to reflect seasonal changes that can occur. Consistency and quality are foremost in our mind.

As coffee machine suppliers we provide the latest Wega Coffee Machines for reliability and quality production of consistently excellent coffee.

We want the coffee that you serve in your cafe to be the very best it possibly can be, consistently, day after day and so we created our purpose built Training Room and Cupping Lab to enable us to teach you the latest best practice in espresso preparation. Our training is hands-on, practical and recipe based and our trainers have a wealth of hospitality experience to help with work flow, processes and café information.

Leaf Bean Machine feel that it is our job to keep up to date with the constantly changing specialty coffee information and to pass it on to our customers. Whether it is coffee theory, brewing techniques and devices, using a Refractometer, latte art or our Community Cupping night we are passionate about all things coffee and are here to help you.

Following on from Barista Basics course, our two hour latte art class will build upon your existing coffee preparation skills, teach you the art of milk texturing and take your latte art to the next level.
