Hey all,

I was looking into finding a latte art training class or the like for my wife as a Christmas present. I ran across Seattle Barista Training Academy in Renton, but they are looking for $1200+ for two days which is way out of my price range. I also saw a MSNBC article from March 2007, that mentioned Zoka, Caffe D’Arte, and Cafe Vita all offer training and/or classes but I could neither find pricing nor any information on their websites.

She is mostly wanting to learn how to do latte art but a more well-rounded training program could only net me better coffee in the end!

Any suggestions?

You just missed Heather Perry's December class, but at $395 you could fly your wife down for the next one for a lot less than $1200.  Click here
