This workshop will prepare students to be able to:

  1. Explain the difference between single and multiple boiler espresso machines.
  2. Identify and source preventative maintenance tools to keep near the espresso machine.
  3. Describe the importance and process of:
    1. cleaning and changing grinder burrs
    2. changing a gasket on the group head (including dispersion screen)
    3. cleaning or changing drainage tubes
    4. steam-wand reassembly
    5. changing water filters
  4. Identify leaky gaskets and steam wand valves. 

The purpose of this course is to provide attendees  with a basic understanding of the inner-workings of espresso equipment.  What's special about this course is that we've attempted to make it as hands-on as possible. This could be the course where a student pierces a gasket with an awl for the first time, or sees the inside of an espresso grinder.
