Barista 102- Philippine Barista & Coffee Academy, Inc. (PBCA)

After I finished my Basic Barista course, I decided to enhance my skills about coffee since I don’t have any university to attend to… and I really am thirsty for knowing more about the world of coffee. So here it goes… I was searching for an advanced barista course and Google brought me to PBCA’s website! I love their website! Aside from the web-hosting, HD photos, and the warm colors they used, compliments with their logo as well. It is really useful! I don’t need to e-mail them to ask more questions since they already indicated the prices of the courses they offer and also the classes’ schedule. “I love everything ’bout this!” I say.

✓ Accessible. The school is not that far from where I live. Just an MRT away!
✓ Good-looking Instructors! Hahahaha yes, I am not kidding! The list of instructors were posted in their site too. But they’re waaay more gorgeous in person!

During the 4 days of Training, I must say I finally saw the “Artist” side of being a Barista.

You need to focus, relax and feel the art. Practice. I don’t see someone who did a perfect latte art in an overnight. Even my instructors spent half a year… or even the best latte artists! We can do it.

Last day…

Yay!!! I already got my certificate!

If you’re planning to manage your own coffee shop, I recommend you to enroll in their Coffee Business Management! They also have some special programs such as Junior Barista Workshop and etc.
