Galway Barista School

The Galway Barista School is an Independent School set up to facilitate Coffee Lovers at all levels.

We currently run several types of courses from One Day Barista Workshops, to Barista Basics, Barista Advanced and Latte Art Courses.

We are also a member of the SCA Specialty Coffee Association and run Barista Foundation, Intermediate and Professional SCA courses. Check our availability below

Our courses are designed for:

1. People looking to get a job in the coffee industry

2. For people already working in a Cafe who would like to upgrade their skills

3. Or for people who just have a keen interest in coffee and want to learn more & have a fun day immersed in the World of Coffee.

Ideally located just 1 minute of the M17 Motorway in Tuam, we are very central for people based in the West of Ireland. We are approximately an hour from Westport, Castlebar, Ballina, Sligo, Leitrim, Roscommon, Athlone, Limerick & Ennis.

What to expect

Our aim is to provide a fun and relaxed environment while learning essential Coffee skills at the same time, a Galway Barista School course will cater for all.

Class sizes are no more then 4 students so the ratio of Student to Teacher is 4:1

Each person attending can expect to learn some historical points about coffee, where it comes from, how its processed etc. You will also get to work on a professional coffee machine and make the basic specialty drinks on a coffee menu, such as, espresso, americano, cappuccino, latte and flat white. For those looking to gain more experience we dive into Latte Art.
