Frequently Asked Questions
Are your courses mobile-friendly?
How long does it usually take to complete a course?
Each of our courses take between 20–30 hours to complete which includes text, video explanations, assessments, and at-home experiments.
I’ve only been into coffee as a consumer, but aspire to become a barista. Are any of your courses suitable for beginners?
Definitely we have courses that are suitable for aspiring baristas. The best places to start are our Barista One and the Percolation Courses. If you’re serious about getting work as a barista then definitely start with the Barista One course. It is vocation focussed but is a course all about the rudiments of espresso making and milk texturing. Here’s a link to more info about them. https://www.baristahustle.com/education-products/ You can access these courses through our Unlimited subscription or by purchasing lifetime access to individual courses.
Do I need an espresso machine, refractometer, or any other special equipment?
No. We’ve designed our courses to help everyone that works with coffee, regardless of what equipment they have access to. Practicing the manoeuvres and designs required for latte art may prove difficult without access to a machine, but BH is the web’s leading knowledgebase to learn about the theory of coffee making.
Are all the courses available on BH unlimited yet? I notice some of them say ‘Lessons Publish Bi-weekly’, or ‘Coming Soon’
We publish our newest courses in fortnightly installments. We send you a newsletter every two weeks to let you know what’s new. Each new course we publish involves approximately four months of research, 25–30,000 words of text and will contain ~ twenty videos in each course. Because it’s such a big undertaking, we subscribers would enjoy getting access to our latest course in installments, rather than in one go. So we roll out our new courses in installments. We release approximately one new chapter every two weeks.
What is the certification process?
For every course you complete, you will receive a Barista Hustle Certified credential. You can locate and print your certificates in your Education Dashboard. have to complete each lesson and comprehension test, then pass the final assessment (80% or higher) to achieve certification. Proof of certification will be located on the BH site. You’ll be able to share the link with prospective employers. Your certificate is also printable.
Is there live tutoring or webinars available?
To make our online courses affordable and accessible to all Baristas, we’ve opted to make the content always accessible and non-interactive. However, we have many accredited BH Coaches around the world. This wonderful group of coffee experts offer hands-on training. They also offer the Barista and Percolation Baseline tests — these are Barista Hustle’s challenging practical certifications, accessible only through a BH Coach. To find a coach, follow this link: https://www.baristahustle.com/find-a-coach/
Can I retake any tests if I don’t pass?
You have unlimited resits on all our tests.
