Attention all aspiring and inquisitive home baristas!  Clive Coffee is very happy to announce an expanded barista class schedule!  From now until the end of the year, Clive will be offering the Home Barista 101 class nearly every Saturday morning here in our Portland showroom.  It’s a great way to polish skills you may already have, or, if you are new to espresso at home, I can’t think of a better way to quickly get started.  Yours truly (Chris Ryan), or our new barista teacher, coffee star Jen Macias (Cartel Coffee Lab in Tempe, AZ and Barista here in Portland) will run you through the basics of espresso extraction, milk steaming, and machine maintenance. Each class participant will pull a ton of shots and steam pitcher after pitcher of milk with a teacher right there next to you showing you the way step-by-step.  Class size is limited to 4 folks maximum to ensure that we have enough time with everyone.  Classes start at 9am, and generally run to 11-11:30am.  You know all those questions you have while watching a barista at work, but don’t feel you can ask?  This is your chance!  Come on in, learn a little something, have a ball, and drink a copious amount of coffee. Cheers!

    Hi, I jsut came across your site while researching how to make/pull beautiful espresso shots. I would like to offer a class at my cooking school on ‘coffee’ but not sure where to begin. Whether to offer an espresso making class or one that offers a wider appeal with cooking with coffee. Right now I’m in the process of researching. I only own a Bialetti Mocha Pot at home but would love to have a quality espresso machine for the cooking school. Just don’t even know where to begin. I will comb your site to get more info. Do you have someone in Southern California who you could recommend to offer such a class. My students are home–cooks looking for experiences they can’t get elsewhere locally.
    Regards, Annette

    Hi Annette,

    I would give the folks at Klatch Coffee a call. They’re located in LA and offer a number of excellent workshops.
