Barista Training at Guerilla Coffee Co.
Once a dedicated barista training facility, we fast learned the student’s need for real life experience to gain confidence and experience in busy work environments.
Guerilla Coffee Co. was designed to be a busy espresso bar set–up where students can practice serving coffee to customers in a fast–paced, busy space to improve their skill level, speed and accuracy using a fully manual Replica Lever HX coffee machine.
Guerilla Coffee Co. is open for practice session bookings during these hours:
Monday to Friday: 7am to 2.30pm.
We sell our coffee on a gift economy model. This means we don’t have any pricing like you’d nd at a regular cafe. When you place your order, we will gift our wares to you. If you wish to gift back to us, we have a gift corner (aka. pay station). Read more about this.
THE GIFT ECONOMY MODEL
Our coffee is sold on a gift economy basis.
A gift economy demonstrates, with each transaction, our power to positively influence collective behaviour within our community. It is a system of social networks or mutually beneficial relationships, based on trust, empathy and reciprocity.
The gift economy concept is an ancient model and is based on mutual trust and gratitude. So far, it’s been an eye-opener and really refreshing to work with.
