Barista Buzz – Guide to Making Perfect Coffee In Australia

Barista Buzz is your ultimate resource guide to becoming a successful and much-loved barista in Australia. We are all guilty of being addicted to coffee and needing our morning fix of caffeine.

We all love our coffee, and I’m sure we all have a favourite, whether a double shot flat white or a skinny soy latte. So hop onto Barista Buzz and get all the details on what qualifications and training you need to get a coffee job, the do’s and don’ts, learn about latte art, and most importantly, how to prepare that perfect cup of coffee.

Because let’s face it, bad coffee is terrible news!
So what is a barista? A barista is our “morning saviour”! We all wake up bleary-eyed, fuzzy, and need a pep me up – that’s where coffee comes in!

Once we find a local café, we will have a new friend, where we can walk into a shop every day, basically smile and not even say what we want, and they will know our order (and name).

Barista Buzz will outline all you need to know about where to study relevant courses, how much these courses will cost…and how much they get paid! When it comes to barista courses offered in Adelaide, there is no better place to check how and where than Barista Buzz.

Here you will find all you need to know to become that perfect Adelaide Barista.


Whether it be a TAFE qualification or going to one of the many institutions specializing in the coffee field, such as HG Coffee School or SA Coffee Academy, you’ll walk away not only with a better understanding of how to prepare the best cup of coffee but also the knowledge to make the best coffee in Adelaide!

Perth has many coffee schools and barista academies, and that can only mean one thing, they know and love their coffee!

The many offered courses range from beginners or entry-level professionals and learning about latte art. They also have many different locations, so finding the right place for you should be very easy. For example, the Coffee School in Murray Street, Perth, is a good starting point to study the Barista Level 1 course, and for only $125 for 3 hours, its money is well spent.

Everyone loves a barista, so how could you go wrong?

Sydney is well known for the beautiful harbour, its seafood…and most of all, it’s coffee! It’s hard to get a lousy cup of coffee in Sydney. They also have many options for studying barista courses, and again, it’s a case of courses ranging from beginners to professionals. One of the best value for money courses is through ‘Hospitality Training Australia’ – a Coffee Course Level 1 for 3 hours, $75.

If you are ready for the next step, the ‘Sydney Coffee Academy‘ could be just the thing you are looking for.

Even though the weather is consistently warmer in Brisbane, that doesn’t mean the Queenslanders don’t like drinking hot coffee; in fact, it’s probably quite the opposite; they love their coffee!

Brisbane offers a number of both non-accredited and accredited courses. Probably the best qualification you can have for coffee is the Master Barista Course from The Barista Basics Coffee Academy.

Don’t just limit yourself to Brisbane, though. The Gold Coast also offers a vast array of courses. Just be sure to choose the best location and qualification for you.

Melbourne – some people would say this city is the coffee capital of Australia! With their quirky little cafes sparling off lanes and arcades, is it any wonder they know how to make a great coffee?

With this in mind, it’s no surprise that Melbourne offers a diverse range of barista courses. From the basics to the big stuff, they have it covered. Moreover, the prices are again quite reasonable. For example, a Barista Course Level 1 at Hospitality Training Australia will only set you $95 for a 4-hour course.

By completion, you will know how to texture milk, operate and clean the machine, know the difference between a flat white and a latte, the different types of milk available, and master them in taste and appearance.
