Private class with your equipment

This private class allows you to get the most out of your home equipment! During the class, you will also be able to tell us which topics you wish to cover and learn more in-depth.

1-4 people


You will need to provide the make and model of your machine and grinder before the class, in order for us to assess your needs and prepare the training in advance. We also recommend that you bring a minimum of one pound of your favorite coffee and a few liters of water (if you do not use Montreal’s tap water), as well as any other accessories your normally use (frothing pitcher, tamper, scale, etc.), in order to re-create your home environment.

During the private training session, we can address any areas you wish. Commonly covered topics include:

  • Basic espresso extraction theory
  • Choosing coffee beans
  • Choosing a recipe (brew ratio + shot time)
  • Diagnosing extraction flaws by taste
  • Tips and techniques to maximize the use of your equipment
  • Best practices for pulling shots
  • How to create microfoam when steaming milk
  • How to pour latte art
  • Cleaning and maintenance
  • Advice on equipment upgrades

($100/h + taxes, minimum of 2 hours, +$50 per additional attendee)
