Purchased a new grinder and coffee machine a few weeks ago, then did the beginners barista course to learn how to get the best out of my machine. Can I just say WOW! The course took my coffee making to the next level. Amber is so knowledgeable and provides excellent customer service in the showroom, she also runs the course. Her knowledge and experience will help you take your coffee making to an entirely new level. So glad to have found the team at Jetblack they sell almost everything you could want associated with coffee making machines and also service machines on the premises as well. It will be the only place I ever go to for my coffee needs from now on. Thanks Amber and all the team at Jetblack.
The barista course at Jetblack Expresso was extremely useful and user friendly. Amber knows her stuff and explains it all very clearly. I learned a lot in 2 hours.

I recently bought a large coffee machine from this company and can honestly say, that from the first phone call to picking up the machine. the service was outstanding and personalized.
I also did the barista course and found that to be done in a very professional yet personal way.
I would recommend them any day of the week.
I recently purchased a Lelit Mara Coffee machine & Lelit PL72 Coffee grinder from Jetblack Espresso.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all & especially Sean & Elly for making my purchase with you a really happy & rewarding experience.
I am delighted with both machines & really appreciate your professional guidance to the correct choice of machine for my needs. An extra bonus is the great espresso coffee i am now making from your Jetblack Espresso coffee bean blend.
Many Thanks again.
Really knowledgable and helpful with a great range. The only place to go for a decent coffee machine.
Excellent customer service and their barista course is top notch.
I purchased a La Pavoni lever machine, and am glad I signed up for the course as soon as possible after purchase. Now I'm getting the most from my La Pavoni and having a wonderful experience.
The range is good and I'm really happy with my setup and accessories.
Worth the trip over the bridge.
Great course, should have done it years ago. I'd recommend anyone buying a new espresso machine do this course.
My husband bought me a coffee course for my birthday, because I've always wanted to learn. It was so much better than I could have hoped for! Comprehensive, fun and very hands on. Deb was my teacher and she was excellent. Was just expecting to learn the basics, but I went home feeling like a pro. I was so excited that I decided to buy a machine, also as a way to save money because as a coffee addict I am a frequent visitor to our local cafe (I think I'm the one keeping them in business lol). I bought the Profitec Pro 500 and I am in love. Could not recommend this place highly enough!
Just made my first coffee after the course...... and wow, what a difference. It tastes amazing. Crema and milk. Thank you!
10th January 2011 - Thankyou note from a barista course customer.
The information and practical demonstration was done in such a way that it was easy to learn without being intimidated and the results were amazing. I am now confident enough to practice at home and make coffee that are as good as any made in a coffee shop!
I would thoroughly recommend the course to anyone who appreciates fine coffee and meeting such great people as Debbie and Charlie!
Barista Course Feedback: 14th May 2011
Dear Debbie and Charlie,
Thank you so much for opening my eyes to making coffee. Having had an expensive home set up (giotto plus grinder) for 5 years and through trial and error, I thought I made a pretty good cup and so did my guests. Now having done your private barista course - how wrong I was. My coffees are now a hundred times better and I''ve unlocked the potential in my equipment (should have spent my money with your barista course before the machinery). With due humility, I used to make good coffees at home to save money...now I have to make it at home as it''s unlikely I''ll find a better cup outside.
See you for my refresher in a few months.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you. I an absolutely thrilled with the Rancilio Silvia machine I bought from you, and even more delighted with the private Barista lesson you gave me.
It is such a pleasure to be able to get up every morning and make myself a cafe quality latte in the comfort of my own kitchen. Thank you so much!
Please feel free to use my comments for your marketing purposes. I am so happy with the results, I would be delighted for others to avail of your wonderful services too.

Thanks for the repair. Machine works a treat. Coffee has made an immediate difference to the brewing experience. Didn't think the machine made coffee like this.
Dear Deb, Charlie and the team at Jetblack Espresso,
Thank you for a wonderful espresso filled morning. Megan and I were both impressed with your presentation and the flow of the session. It was thoroughly professional.
The things we learned this morning have added to our at home coffee experience and we will keep you in mind when referring friends and family.
The sourness and cloud lattes have happily been replaced with God shots and rosettas!

Hi Charlie and Debbie,
just wanted to thank you for your invaluable assistance in getting up and running with our home espresso setup. Having bought the equipment, we expected great results immediately. However, it was only after attending your Barista course that we started to achieve some truly satisfactory results and we are now producing consistently good coffees.
Hi Deb & Charlie
Great course, I learnt more about coffee and its making in two hours than I did in my entire life. Couldn't be happier with my new espresso machine and grinder, my friends are very impressed, and love my coffee from home.
Course should be compulsory with all coffee machine purchases.
I'd like to let you know how happy everyone is with your espresso machine.
They are all fast becoming coffee snobs. The grinder is great & your coffee blend is excellent.
Nice orderly flow of presentation. Excellent student teacher ratio. Will be recommending to other home coffee strugglers!
