The Art of the Latte Class with Michael Keen

Though Michael has recently sold Studio 6 Coffee House, he is still available for training at your premises. Please inquire for availability and cost.

The perfect gift for the coffee connoisseur in your life! This 2 hour class is an introduction to the world of espresso, covering topics from the history of coffee and espresso to the preparation of perfect espresso and espresso based drinks. Students will learn how to taste espresso and recognize the subtle nuances and flavors that make espresso good or bad.

We will explore the possibilities of modifying our extraction technique and learn how we can utilize these modifications to obtain the best possible espresso. We will also go into the creation of latte art; from free-pour art such as the Rosetta and Leaf designs to Etching and the possibilities of the art form.

The class will be taught by Michael Keen, former owner of Studio 6 Coffee House and internationally renowned barista and coffee artist. Michael has appeared on NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, CNN, and more. He creates images in coffee for various print and television outlets and has been featured in The Denver Post, The Rocky Mountain News, Denver Modernism, 5280 Magazine, The Today Show, Channel 9 News, Fox 31 News, Channel 4 News, and many more. His book The Art of the Latte should be released late next year.

This class is perfect for espresso drinkers of all levels; from the casual at-home drinker to the serious professional barista. We also offer a latte art intensive for coffee shop professionals who want to take their craft to the next level.
