YIELD COFFEE ROASTERS Presents: YIELD Academy - a list of classes hosted by YIELD's founders + team of educators.

A virtual course led by YIELD’s educators focused on the theory and practice of making espresso-and-milk drinks at home.

Have you ever wanted to make the best coffee at home, but struggled to understand your equipment? Learn the basics to perfecting the art of specialty coffee at home. We believe great coffee shouldn't be limited to the coffee shop setting. These courses are designed to teach, empower, and guide you to better coffee-making theories and techniques. Become Your Own Barista.

Course Content Includes:

• Pulling the Perfect Shot
• Dialing in Espresso to Taste
• Milk Steaming Theory
• Guided Milk Steaming Practice
• Milk Steaming Fundamentals
• Introduction to Latte Art
• Basic Espresso Machine and Grinder Cleaning
• Live Q&A with your Instructor
• The Barista Guide – A Step by Step Instruction Manual to Help You Dial in Espresso Basics + Wow Your Friends

If you have a home espresso machine, chances are you've encountered coffees that are difficult to dial in (making it taste really gooooood!), or maybe your milk just looks like a bubbly hot mess. You've probably heard a thousand different opinions on how to best pull a shot. If you’re looking for answers - we have a few of them. We've worked over 5 years searching for the most consistent, simple, and quality-focused methods that anyone can replicate in a simple manner.
