Barista Basics Coffee Workshops

Do you love all things coffee? Making it and drinking it? Fancy yourself as a barista-maestro?


  • More Info

    Come along to our Basic Barista Workshop and let us help you on your way to achieving espresso-greatness.

    The Barista Basics Workshop is a hands-on morning, running for around 2.5 hours and you will be working on the espresso machine at Two Chimps HQ. There will be just a small group of coffee lovers on each course to ensure that each student has the devoted attention and guidance from our on-site barista.

    To begin, we will start with an introduction to speciality coffee, how it’s grown, processed and ethically sourced. To follow, we will talk about the coffee roasting process and what we do here at Two Chimps Coffee. Don’t worry; we won’t keep you from the barista machine for too long as we know you’ll be itching to have a play!

    Into the training room we go… All good drinks made by a barista start with the love in your life… the Coffee! This is a great place to start; all good drinks need a good shot of espresso. We will dose, tame, tamp and extract espresso with you and talk about how to spot over and under extraction.

    This will lead to changing your coffee to water ratio to achieve different espresso ‘style’ shots along with a brief introduction to steaming and texturizing milk.

    We will finish with a ‘drinks-off’, explaining the differences between the popular drinks and how to make them. The opportunity to make all of these using the tips and tricks learnt from this workshop will take the session to a close.

First and foremost, the coffee is excellent: varied, well chosen and with accurate tasting notes. I have found the subscription service to be reliable and good valuable - the coffee arrives fresh and undamaged, without over packaging and is packaged in such always as to be delivered through the letterbox. The website is a pleasure to use, and in addition to the coffee, there is a wide range of coffee making apparatus and consumables such as filters for V60 and Chemex. These are reasonably priced and always dispatched promptly. Finally, there is a knowledgeable human at the end of the phone should you have a question.

I look forward every week to receiving my lovely freshly roasted coffee beans and their quirky names always make me smile! The service is superb and speedy, nothing is ever a problem. I bought an Aeropress coffee maker for a Christmas present and had great advice from Laura. I would (and do) highly recommend them.

Where have you been all my life?!I can only drink decaf, and I drink it black, so it's got to be great coffee. Until now, I've never found one that doesn't have any bitterness or is weirdly weak. The "how many llamas ... " coffee is truly outstanding! Smooth, full of flavour, and sets my day up just nicely, thank you very much.Thank you Two Chimps. Great mornings are finally here.

I was really delighted with my Christmas hamper from ActionCOACH Oakham. Even more delighted that it contained your coffee. I like to seek out independent coffee roasters and I will be definitely be buying more - it was delicious!

Getting decent coffee is a pain, well at least it was. I discovered two chimps through a friend and I don’t regret it. They provide high quality coffee delivered to my door and there is always a different one to try. A lot of single origin coffees which all have different flavours, their coffee is ethically sourced. No query is too much trouble and their website is easy to use. However they don’t just do coffee but their hot chocolate is good, as are their teas. Mint tea with hot choc is fab I haven’t been allowed to try marmite hot choc. Free delivery is included what more could you wish for. My only complaint is I sometimes run out at the end of the month, perhaps I should order more ?, the ability to order 300g bags? Just a great local family business with excellent customer service.
