Espresso topics are 'bite' sized topics that are no longer than two hours in duration.

If you feel that you need longer on an individual topic or want a 'pic 'n mix' of multiple topics then request a Latte workshop​​​​​​​​​. If you can't see a topic of your choice, please get in contact so that we can discuss it.
