Emporio offers every level of barista training, from café clients to anyone wanting to extend their knowledge on their home machine or looking to work in a café.

Training can be tailored for groups as a fun and informative corporate event.


Barista Training

Our barista training courses are tailored to your needs. If you are a café client, our highly-skilled trainer will simulate a commercial café environment to provide a hands-on demonstration of all aspects of making the perfect coffee, from the grinder to the tamper, to the cup.

For students or those wanting to enter the hospitality industry, our master barista will gently guide you through the fundamentals of making a great espresso with Emporio beans.

The two-hour course takes place in our training room at 90 Abel Smith St, Wellington and cost $100. Participants all receive a certificate as acknowledgement of their training.
