Barista Training - The Naked Way

Barista Training

At Naked Espresso, we believe that barista training is one of the most important essentials behind the success of any café. We educate and empower baristas to understand how coffee and equipment changes within the environment. We offer after hours on-site training either at your cafe or at our cafes. All training is followed up with regular visits to reassess the baristas’ level of skill.

STEP 1 - Introduction & Education
Baristas are given an introduction and a tour of Naked Espresso, and then the journey of the coffee bean from Crop to Cup is explained!

STEP 2 - Dosing & Distribution
Baristas are shown how to manage working with coffee grinders, in order to achieve, produce and master a consistent flavour in the cup.

STEP 3 - Milk Texturing & Pouring
Various techniques are shown and demonstrated, in order to produce a well balanced and finished cup.

STEP 4 - Latte Art
Where the fun begins!
Barristers are then given time to put all their training and knowledge they have acquired to produce a variety of coffees, that not only taste good, but present perfectly each time!

STEP 5 - Practice makes perfect!

The 'Naked' Coffee Bean Journey

Coffee Bean Journey

Our 'Naked' coffee bean journey will take you to India, showcasing the humble process of the coffee bean from crop to cup.

2. Coffee Cherries - Arabica coffee cherries.
3. Coffee Cherries - Robusta coffee cherries.
4. Coffee Plant - Arabica coffee plant with cherries. The plant grows to approximately 4 foot high!
5. Coffee Picker - Only the ripe cherries are picked.
6. Sorting Cherries - Picker sorts the ripe cherries ready for weighing and processing.
7. Processing - There are two processes 'honey' or 'natural'.
8. Patio - The coffee beans need to be turned every couple of hours for four days until completely dried.
9. Dried Beans - Dried coffee beans ready to be bagged and roasted.
10. Honey Process - Coffee beans are dried in beds with some of the mucilage left on them.
11. Naked Espresso Coffee - The end result is a delicious cup of 'Naked' coffee.
