“I started from scratch on day 1 with no previous experience working on coffee machines. 9 hours later, with the help & guidance from Andrew, I was able to make all of the major coffee orders & add latte art to the beverages. I am so grateful for this experience & would highly recommend it to anyone interested to begin working in this field!”


” I really enjoyed the barista course and I am glad to have learned a very useful skill. The Hook and Ladder staff were really friendly and helpful. I am now confident that I’d be able to serve any customer any coffee order!”
