If you've mastered the basics of pulling a shot, whether from taking our Intro to Espresso course, spending hours on Youtube University, or having once worked behind the bar as a barista, and you're ready to up your espresso game, then you've landed in the right place. Advanced Espresso is training designed specifically for you, the home barista. We've laid out this information in easily digestible segments to debunk coffee myths one by one as we show you what's really important. This self-paced course has about 90-minutes of video instruction and is packed with palate development exercises and a plethora of barista tricks— backed by science (and just a little bit of math and good luck).

Over the past seven years, I've seen just about every side of the coffee industry, from behind the counter serving you your lattes, to traveling around the States, training cafe owners, and baristas. In 2018, I joined Clive Coffee with one goal: to help more people drink better coffee without the trouble of having to order it from the old, tired Sam that once served it to you. What a concept, cafe-quality coffee without having to leave your house?! That's what Clive is all about! We've been turning your everyday coffee lovers into home baristas since 2008, but in 2020, we changed the coffee industry... again.

I've spent this year alongside an incredible team of coffee educators to create a training program designed specifically for you, the home barista. My hope for you- to make better coffee than your favorite cafe or barista. Can you do it? Absolutely. That's why we've made Coffee School. Cheers to better coffee and happier mornings.
