LIFE-TIME ACCESS, COURSE & CERTIFICATION
Course & Certification
Latte art has gone from an occasional novelty in third-wave coffee shops to a signature of modern coffee culture. It is no longer just the domain of specialty coffee; it has been widely adopted all around the world, practiced everywhere from the kitchens of home baristas to the shop floors of mass retail chains. At Barista Hustle we recognise that customers assume baristas have mastered this part of their craft — and that those expectations can feel intimidating. We also understand how difficult and time-consuming it can be to pass on to other baristas the skills required for this amazing art.
But we also know how much fun and impressive latte art can be, once you’ve got the hang of it. That’s why we put together this complete training and certification platform to help you master this art form. This course takes you from dairy to cup — and teaches you everything in-between, from milk chemistry to brush-stroke technique.
We are grateful to to Shinsaku ‘Shin’ Fukayama, the 2018 Australian Latte Art Champion, for his role as the Barista Hustle artist-in-residence. This course is intended to engender an awareness of the science and technique behind this beautiful, ephemeral art form. That awareness can, in turn, strengthen all the links in the production chain — from farm to cup..
All of our courses and certifications are available through BH Unlimited as a monthly subscription or as a single course purchase, giving you access for life!

Can I share the course with my friends?
Each user will have to pay for their own access to the course. We reserve the right to limit the number of IP addresses that access the course for each account and revoke access.

Do I need an espresso machine, refractometer, or any other special equipment?
No. We’ve designed this course to help everyone that works with espresso-based coffee drinks, regardless of their equipment. Practicing the manoeuvres and designs required for latte art may prove difficult without access to a machine, however.
Is it suitable for beginner-level home or service baristas?
If you can hold a cupping spoon — this course if for you.
Is it only offered in English?
For now, yes. We are working on making translations available in several languages later on down the line. Stay tuned!
The course is limited to one IP address. Can I sign in from multiple devices?
Yes! Multiple devices or locations are okay, but we’re mainly on the lookout for large-scale abuse.
