I couldn't be happier about my training with Simon! I found his information really valuable and I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to update their knowledge about coffee standards in Australia or who is just starting their career as a barista

Highly recommend this course for everyone, especially who’s living in Sydney area and wants to find a barista job or just interested in coffee art. The trainer Nguyen Le is super super friendly, enthusiastic and I can see that he really wants to express his passion about coffee to everybody around. He also provided me some useful tips and experience which are really important for a new guy like me. Another trainer, Viet Nguyen, is awesome as well. He’s really dedicated in the class and also enthusiastically reminds his students to do some revisions at home.
Overall, although there are plenty of options to find a good barista course in Sydney but this one I think is one of the best to consider.

Amazing training from Lee, so passionate about his craft. We were short for time and Lee managed to fit us into his schedule. Can’t recommend him enough. The attention to detail and the amount of time we had on the machine was beyond our expectation. Thank you Lee, we will keep practicing our heavy pour tulips.

Le was such an amazing trainer: super friendly, experienced, knowledgeable and very supportive! Although I’ve had a bit of experience in making coffee previously, thanks to his helping me point out my strengths and weaknesses, I can see that my skills have been improved remarkably. Besides, I love that there are only 2 students per class, which made the course more personalised (though affordable fee) and also really assisted in achieving the highest training quality.
Once again, thank you so much Lee, and to anyone out there who’s looking for a credible barista training course, I highly recommend First Shot Barista Training!

Really good quality course! Nguyen Le was taught really well from the basics of how to make a good coffee until how to get a job from small things that we never thought. He is also so motivated and open-minded. Really enjoy the course, thank you!

My friend and I chose the Job Hunting course and it was fantastic. Le Nguyen was an amazing leader and showed us everything we needed to know to become junior baristas (milk steaming, latte art, correct dosages, ect). Definitely recommend him!!

Definitely recommended! After taking the course, I got a new job. The trainer is amazing, with positive energy, and rich knowledge of coffee. Before taking the course, I felt unconfident and never made the milk right. But after only a few minutes with the trainer, I did the milk perfectly, even latte art became easy for me. I sent the deposit before the course started, and when the course ended Nguyen Le didn't even ask me to pay the rest amount of the fee (80%), only when I found the job, I can pay him back. How nice he is.

Highly recommend for those who truly want to become a barista and get a good job. Le and Simon are awesome trainers. They are very enthusiastic, funny, friendly and have many experiences in this industry to share with you. Thanks to them, now I know a barista requires so many things other than just making a cup of coffee or a certificate. Once again, thank you First Shot for inspiring me and hopefully, you can inspire more and more people.

His course helps me a lot to gain coffee making skills and knowledge about different kinds of coffee. Besides, I had a lot of time to practice in a professional environment. Furthermore, after the course the trainers also support me in looking for a job and with their support I got the job straight. Thank you Le for support me a lot and demonstrate how to steam milk and make coffee properly so many times. Thank you Simon for offering me a job
