BROWNS takes a personalised interest in the delivery of its courses to ensure that students are trained to the highest standard, but don’t take our word for it, hear what our graduates have to say about the Barista@BROWNS program:

“I really enjoyed the Barista course at BROWNS. My teachers are very amazing, and my classmates are all very friendly and diligent as well. Teachers really have a strong passion for teaching, and are willing to make sure we understand the content and share their experience and skills with us. We learned a lot of background knowledge for coffee and RSA, and have many opportunities to practice making coffee and serving customers to improve our skills which will help us to find a job here.”

“If you don’t have any experience in making coffee, I suggest you come to BROWNS!! I did have a great time in the Barista course. Teachers are amazing, energetic, and helpful. I not only got knowledge of coffee but also had the opportunity to practice making coffee. In addition, I did improve my English skills at the same time. I would like to say I was glad to join this big family.”

I love BROWNS’ barista teachers, my classmates and all BROWNS Staff!! The barista teachers are amazing!! They are dedicated to teaching and supporting me, so I ask questions when I cannot understand something. Actually, I was worried about not knowing any coffee and beverages at all, but we can learn about it (also RSA, Hygiene, and tips on the workplace) from the basics in the class, which is really helpful to us and also improves my English. We have awesome practical classes to serve coffee to students! I am becoming more and more interested in becoming a barista. I will never forget the wonderful days in the BROWNS Barista Course!”

“I did a five weeks barista course at BROWNS. I learned a lot of knowledge about coffee beverages as well as how to operate espresso machines. Also, the teachers are so nice to us. What is more, we get a nationally recognised certificate that includes attainment for food safety and RSA. Overall, I really enjoyed this barista course! Thank you”
