Have just recently started looking into this as well, as I plan to purchase an espresso machine/grinder within the next 6 months. I haven't found anything online, but perhaps you could check with one of the fine local roasters and see what advice they could give? Java Blend or Just Us! might be good places to start. If you find anything out please let me know! :D

Ok this is what I can tell you so far. Java blend does offer a barista 101 style course, it seems to be a one evening type of event. I am looking for a much more in depth training so I am enrolling in the Canadian barista academy in the new year. Also codboymt I will also have a machine for sale sometime in January, pending purchase of a new HX machine.

Very interested in same. Here in Halifax/Darkside looking for people to network/learn from. A workshop at the very least here in Hali would be excellent. There are rumours that a certain coffee related spot on North St may be putting on a Barista Jam in March. Maybe we can try to drum up some support and gauge the local interest for a course/workshop.
