Science and Passion

Extracting the elusive nectar from the coffee bean is a culinary reward not achieved by accident but rather by training, diligence and passion.

Learn the critical elements that are essential to making the perfect latté; adjusting the grind, controlling the dose, finessing the pour, and caressing the milk to the consistency of smooth velvet.

 We will guide you through the processes of coffee extraction and milk texturing. Our goal is to pass on to you the love of the bean; the passion of the barista.


The Trainer

Michael Perry grew up in the restaurant business and pursued culinary interests at New York's prestigious Dean & Deluca, working with acclaimed chef, Felipe Rojas-Lombardi.  He then discovered fine espresso’s finicky nuances under the expert tutelage of David Schomer, renowned espresso guru, author, and owner of Espresso Vivace.  Michael has owned, managed, trained and staffed restaurants and espresso bars for over 20 years. 

His ability as an instructor is showcased regularly at Everett Community College and Boeing’s Quality Through Training Program, as a technical trainer.

Although usually conducting computer classes, his Espresso Techniques has been a popular course at EVCC.  Read article in Everett Business Journal
