Hi everyone,

First of all, thank you so much for the wealth of information you have provided over the years in my quest to become a better home barista :-) Your info led me towards the Rancilio Silvia and I love her.

I am shooting a wedding in Florence, Italy and am planning on staying an extra day to perhaps attend a barista class. Having a tough time on google finding good places for this...

Sent messages to http://aprireunbar.com/corsi/courses/, http://www.espressoacademy.it/lang/eng/?mail=1 but no one gets back to me. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance!!

Take a trip to Seattle?  That is what I am having to do.... to get a barista class. Good luck in Italy. I am green with envy.

August 20th= summer vacation time
even in a touristy town such as Firenze
it might be not easy to find what you are looking for without prior arrangements
my best suggestion (which I didn't think will take you very far) is to find a very nice and "classy bar" and perhaps ask the barista but but but
have fun have some good vino, food and of course espresso
