Subject: SF Bay Area Espresso Classes?
 

I'm having fun getting to know my new machine and grinder at home with the help of this forum, YouTube videos, and lots of trial-and-error, but I think it would also be useful to go to a class for some hands-on training. This being the Bay Area there are classes for EVERYTHING--except espresso-making, it seems. A few local cafes offer classes on brewing better coffee at home, but they're all about pourover/drip/Aeropress, not espresso. Do you know of any cafes or learning centers (adult schools, hackerspaces, community art/craft centers, etc.) that offer classes on making espresso?

I to live in the bay I find it more hard to find espresso parts in the bay for my gaggia classic. I would recommend making friends with a good barista. I was fortunately my friend has been a barista for over 5 years and owns isomac and mazer so I can always compare my technique and equipment. I been to many good cafe in Berkeley and Oakland due to its high level of hipsters, you should be able to find someone who be willing to share info.

Good luck
