Event Details

illycaffè is proud to offer Be Your Own Barista: a very special event in the illy Master Barista Series, all about understanding, enjoying and learning how to prepare the perfect espresso-based beverages.

The focus is on how to achieve barista-quality results, right at home. Along the way, demystifying the espresso-making experience, tasting the perfect espresso, and banishing a myth or two (hint: lemon peels are not on our curriculum).

You will:
• Learn coffee’s origins: from Ethiopia, to India and beyond
• Understand bean agronomy and chemistry: critical coffee expertise
• Witness “behind the bar” expert espresso preparation
• Learn what makes a perfect cappuccino, and how the experts steam milk
• Gain an appreciation for how the right equipment matters, and see what’s new

Your Host and Instructor: Giorgio Milos, Master Barista, illycaffè.
