By professionals, for professionals
Coffee is critical, machinery essential, and skill & ability is the final piece of the puzzle to get right if you want to serve the perfect espresso. At J.J. Darboven, we take every bit as seriously as the next. Located right in the heart of Dun Laoghaire, J.J. Darboven has its very own Barista academy. This academy is at the full disposal of our out of home clients for training as & when needed. It is also open to the public for classes, which are run weekly.
This class is designed to give you a full understanding of Barista work & the espresso machine itself. No previous experience is required for this class. The day begins with a drinks demonstration and a breakdown of the differences. It then becomes a completely practical class under the supervision of highly experienced professionals.
