LIFE-TIME ACCESS, COURSE & CERTIFICATION
Course & Certification
Advanced espresso looks into the latest innovations in modern barista technique and recent developments in machine and grinder engineering. It also dives deep into the physics of espresso extractions and offers a big rethink on our approach to grinds distribution and the nature of channelling. You will finish this course with a clear picture of what science currently understands about espresso. In those areas where we don’t have the answers, guided by the unbelievable scientific knowhow of our Cambridge chemistry graduate and researcher Tom Hopkinson, and the generous mentorship of world expert in solubility science, Professor Steven Abbott, the BH Learn team begins to look into areas in espresso extraction that are still a mystery to science. New lessons will be added as part of our biweekly publishing schedule. See the current course curriculum below!
All of our courses and certifications are available with a BH Unlimited monthly subscription.
