The new courses are designed by Head Trainer of ONA Coffee and World Barista Championship finalist, Hugh Kelly. He says that the courses have been tailored to cater for different degrees of knowledge and experience in the coffee industry.

“In the past we have offered a beginner course for barista skills, latte art and filter coffees,” he said.

“Now we are looking to really expand the breadth of our courses and offer more group and advanced options, for those really looking to further their knowledge and improve their skills.”

The courses are conducted at ONA’s training facilities in Canberra and Sydney, with the Sydney training space recently having been redeveloped to cater for more classes.

“We are really excited about what we’re now doing in these spaces, especially with the improvements to the training room in Sydney,” Hugh said.

“Our focus is to make sure we are sharing as much knowledge as possible, so that people really take away a lot from these courses.”

The new courses now include a Foundation Barista Course, Latte Art Course, Filter Coffee Course and Advanced Coffee Extraction Course, with more to come in the future.

“Our next step is to introduce a range of Intermediate courses, for people who have experience in coffee but are just looking to make that next step up to a more advanced level,” Hugh says.

The excitement doesn’t just stop with new courses, with Hugh also announcing 10% off all of the new courses during the month of July.

“We want people to come and try out the courses for themselves, to bring a friend or organise it as something fun for their kids during the school holidays.”

“Learning about coffee is so much fun and is a really valuable skill. We’re excited to share the knowledge we’ve gained over the years with a new generation of coffee professionals.”
