Fabio is a coffee expert and an international coffee consultant with over 10 years of experience. Fabio is also one of the pioneers of the modern-day phenomena – coffee flair.

Fabio has put all of his knowledge and experience into the 5-Day Barista Course so you can gain an in-depth understanding of the journey of the coffee bean. You’ll be guided through every step of the way, from the moment the fruit is picked, through the roasting process; to when it hits your cup. You will also learn practical skills regarding milk handling, latte art, customer service and even touch upon barista marketing. Finally, EBS Rome will also host seminars about brewing methods, coffee flair and coffee mixology for you.
