Who should take this:

The program is for someone who wants to be able to take any coffee and have a delicious espresso with minor calibrations. This is for you if you want to learn the ins and outs of your machine and brew cafe-quality coffee at home. We also require no previous brewing experience, and you do not need a machine at home.
