About us

Founded in 2017 by the Café Barista team, the National Barista Institute aims to share knowledge and nurture the long-term growth of our local coffee culture. With programs for the general public and professionals alike, we give you access to expert instructors, facilities and equipment so you can discover the various facets of the great world of coffee. The Institute will take you to the next level, where you’ll explore coffee, from bean to cup, and everything in between.

Our facilities

We have large open spaces to host training courses and conferences, including a bar, coffee counter, studio kitchen and a large multipurpose room that can accommodate up to 60 people.

Our partners


Siège Hublot

Who better than a globetrotting coffee lover to co-host the conference Coffee & Travel? Jean-Michel Dufaux, the author behind the travel Website Siège Hublot, is our chief travel aficionado.



All our workshops and training courses are given on commercial or residential Rocket Espresso Milano machines, made by hand in Italy with quality materials for optimal extraction.
