I really enjoyed the class. I definitely have learned a lot of things. The content of this course wasn’t easy but David can explain clearly and make it simple and easy to understand. I 100% recommend everyone who would like to be a barista or interested in coffee to come and join with The Espresso School. From my experience, this is one of the best schools.
