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!
