The class was great for when i was there. I had an emergency situation come up so i had to leave about 90 minutes early. More clear directions to the building and classroom would have been nice. Having the equipment setup in advance would have been nice to consolidate the class. The instructor Sven was great.

Do not take this class. You can get more information from a YouTube video. The instructor only knows how to brew one thing (an espresso shot) and has no coffee knowledge what so ever. He couldn't tell us ratios when making an espresso and recommended using pods instead of whole bean coffee. He showed up with dirty equipment. You come out of the class knowing how to brew a shot of espresso and that's it. I'd be embarrassed to take his certificate when applying for a job as he didn't teach any other drinks other than the espresso shot. Bottom line save your money or go to a reputable class.
