Barista Experience Event

This is your chance to try your hand at creating your very own espresso blend and learning the intricate art of the Barista.


Duration: 2 - 2.5 hours

Requirements: Sufficient space for a table plus chairs per team

Group Size: 4 - 60 in teams of 5

Guests make coffee at giant barista machine'

Learn the intricate art of the Barista

After an informative presentation highlighting the finer points of producing the perfect shot of espresso and a brief history of the drink, it’s your turn to get hands on and put into practice what you’ve learnt.

Provided with all the knowledge and equipment necessary to develop a wonderful array of coffee-based beverages, you will each have the chance to perfect your skills at your own coffee station, before stepping up to the top of the range barista bar and serving a selection of drinks to order.

Can you steam milk to perfection to create the ultimate cappuccino? Produce a micro foam smooth enough to attempt Latte art? Or create the perfect layers required for the complex Latte Macchiato?

The Barista Experience is a fantastic opportunity to try something unusual in a relaxed and fun environment, giving your guests a rewarding and creative experience with a difference.

You never know… it may even turn the tea drinkers into coffee devotees!


How It Works…

After an initial briefing and informative introduction from our Event Manager, the group will be split into teams of 5 and provided with all the tools and ingredients required to try their hand at creating the perfect Espresso – which acts as a base for a variety of drinks including Cappuccino, Latte, Mocha, Americano and the super complex Latte Macchiato – which the guests will be tasked with making.

Each group will have their own work station including:

  • Ingredients including flavourings, spices and a  selection of coffee beans to create blends
  • Barista tools including grinders and an Espresso machine with steamer/foamer
  • Guidance and advice from our experienced Baristas

Photos taken at the event

Please see the following selection of images taken at a recent Barista Experience team building event – note that quality of coffees made will depend on the ability of your team to quickly put into practise the skills learnt!

ESP , [5] star rating

“The events on both days were a great success, I am receiving lots of positive feedback and the combination of the Barrista experience and team building was first class. I still think I will it to the experts to make a good Latte! I would take this opportunity of thanking you so much for organising and both hotels were excellent. Everyone looking forward to future events and please keep in touch. ”
