Welcome to the Barista Training School!

15 years ago SIPS Espresso Service Supply recognized that many entrepreneurs and corporate clients alike, had no real Barista Training for their staff.  Many customers were purchasing espresso machines without the knowledge of how to use or maintain their new machines. Subsequently, SIPS built an intimate 10 seat Barista Training Institute inside its showroom so customers could actually be trained on the equipment they were purchasing, in a real life Italian Espresso Bar environment. The idea has developed to now become one of the most comprehensive one-day Barista Training Seminars available anywhere in the USA. You will learn the history of Espresso, the true Italian methods of espresso drink making, and the importance of the correct espresso grind.   Additionally we cover the daily, weekly and annual care & maintenance of espresso machines, water filtration, American Coffee/Tea Brewers, Espresso Grinders, and Commercial Blenders. The latter part of the course is a hands-on course on the hottest trend in Cafe menus; Gourmet Tea, Frappes, and Fruit Smoothies. Learn how to make all those popular Latte drinks and Seasonal espresso recipes. Incorporated into our training will be valuable information including:

  • Creating Your Drink Menu
  • Sample Menu's from Actual Successful Cafes
  • The Importance of Signature Drinks
  • Complimenting Food Items
  • Smoothies
  • Gourmet Tea (Hot and Iced )
