For anyone who's had the distinct displeasure of having to sit through the tedium of a state-sponsored barista course, one of Concrete Playground's favourite haunts is offering budding baristas and coffee aficionados a welcome alternative.

The shabby chic Grounds of Alexandria have launched their own coffee classes, focusing not only on how to get the perfect balance and taste to your coffee but also how to make your coffee look beautiful and irresistible, just like the pros do. Head barista and trainer Jack Hanna is certainly the man to listen to on the topic, having won the 2010 Golden Bean Award as well being the World Latte Art Champion. If these sort of barista skills sound like your bag, then check out the Latte Art & Basic Barista Skills Workshop.

However, if you fancy yourself as a real coffee connoisseur, then the Roasting & Cupping Workshop provides a more in-depth and holistic tour of what goes into making the perfect cuppa. With tours of the Grounds' remarkable Research Facility, where the roasting machines work their magic, Hanna takes classes through the roasting process and the ins and outs of the coffee selection process. On top of this, the course teaches the art of cupping such that you have a complete understanding of the process your cappuccino goes through to reach its fullest potential in your cup.

So if you want an insider look into how to make the ultimate cup of coffee then ditch the dour alternatives and check out the Grounds of Alexandria courses.
