Coffee Classes

Private coffee classes with Naiman Rigby are available upon request. Contact us at for more information.

Naiman teaches UT Informal classes at Kick Butt Coffee (reviews) and private courses and consulting based on availability.

For a group private class we can accommodate 2 to 6 people (perfect for a small b-day party). Yes, 6 is the maximum. This is because 6 students, plus the teacher, plus the baristas on duty, is the max that can fit behind the counter.

I teach private courses at Corona Coffee Co. on Saturday mornings from 6a-8:30a and it includes all the coffee and tea etc you can drink. I can sometimes teach on Sundays depending on the date.

The 1-6 person course includes a lecture summarizing the history of coffee and the development of coffee science from it’s origins until present day. This will also inform the students about all the variables listed on a coffee package and how to use that info to understand what the coffee inside has to offer. We will study the equipment and assorted tools and spend hands on time practicing building and designing beverages and making latte art.

Feel free to also send me a summary of your main reason (s) for scheduling the course so it can be tailored to your specific interests. We can instruct on anything from general interest in coffee to consumer and commercial espresso set ups, coffee business practices and establishing shops, and even sourcing and roasting coffee both at home and in commercial environments.

Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to reach me here to schedule a date for a class if you’re interested.
