CLASS ONE: Three-hour intensive Latte Art Workshop

In this three-hour intensive Latte Art Workshop, led by Matt Milletto, Director of Training at the American Barista & Coffee School, and other ABC's lead instructors, students will learn the fundamentals and foundation behind pouring great latte art. Students will be taught to pour consistent latte art on every drink. Workshop will cover a wide range of pour types from the basic rosetta to multi-art pours.

All skill levels are welcome.

ABC’s Director Matt Milletto is a member of the SCAA Training Committee, featured coffee expert in numerous publications and frequent speaker at coffee industry conferences. In 2006, Mr. Milletto’s latte art techniques were featured in Bellissimo Coffee InfoGroup’s award-winning Advanced Barista Training: Extreme Pours training video.

CLASS TWO: Three-hour Sensory Skills Workshop

This three-hour intensive workshop will be led by Andrew Hetzel, licensed Q-Grader and Director of Hawaii-based consultancy, Cafemakers. In this workshop, attendees of all skill levels will participate in exercises that improve taste and aroma identification proficiency.

Workshop attendees will practice the SCAA sensory skills exam with guidance and training, as well as perform olfactory and coffee cupping triangulation exercises comparable to those required for Q-Grader licensing or barista competition judging certification. This program is open to coffee professionals preparing for industry accreditation or anyone seeking to sharpen sensory acuity.
