The world of coffee is one with an immense amount of information and for those of you who love their brew, Owens Coffee have carefully developed Home Barista training courses run by highly qualified and professional Baristas, to assist you on your coffee journey. 

At Owens, we are passionate about providing a top quality product and believe education on how to recreate the coffee you buy in a cafe or takeaway at home is a must for all coffee enthusiasts.  Whether it is a flat white, Americano or Latte, we know that making an excellent quality coffee is an art.  It isn’t just about the coffee; it is about the water, the milk and what method you use.
