Neville Morgan has delivered Barista Courses to our senior students over the last six years. In my opinion he offers the most comprehensive instruction available and I would recommend him unreservedly. He has a wonderful way with young people and shows great empathy. The students appreciate his patience and tolerance. Some find it easier than others but Neville’s humour and encouragement lifts the spirits of those for whom this doesn’t come naturally. Neville is passionate about coffee-making and keeps up to date by attending International Barista Competitions throughout the world. He has unquestionable integrity and has a very high level of professionalism in all that he does.

As I have retired this month from many years of teaching Hospitality at Katikati College. I would like to take this opportunity to “Shout Out” about our fabulous Barista Man Neville. He has been amazing over the past 5 or 6 years he has worked with the level2 & 3 students of Katikati College. His infinate patience with all students and his willingness to go the extra mile is why we bring him back each year. He deals so well with all those things that happen in a school that throw your planning into dissaray and keeps focussed on the students success.
Many thanks to Neville and the Espresso Team from myself and all those students who have been successful and grown in confidence because of your hard work and care for others.

I can highly recommended Neville Morgan as a one on one barista trainer. I recently received funding for someone I support to upskill as a barista. Not only was Neville extremely enthusiastic but he was patient and understanding of their particular needs. Throughout the course my client was himself enthused and keen to learn more. Neville is highly skilled and knowledgeable about all aspects of the coffee trade and barista work. I would not fail to recommend Neville to anyone wanting to find a caring and considerate trainer.

I have owned and managed The Red Rose Café for many years. Prior to that I was a teacher for thirty years with experience at intermediate, secondary and tertiary levels. I first met Neville when he became the local agent for a leading Auckland roastery. Neville quickly demonstrated  his very thorough understanding of our needs and those of the market. He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of coffee and cafés and excellent people-skills enabling him to pass that on. We asked him at the outset to train our whole crew so that every staff member understood the theory behind coffee-making as well being able to produce good servings. In some cases this meant overcoming ingrained bad habits and Neville’s humour and empathy were crucial in enabling people to accept change. Since then he has continued training new staff as they join us and periodically we ask him to refresh skills within the established team. His demonstrations and explanations are clear, succinct, well-structured and tightly-focussed on trainees’ needs. As an experienced educator myself I appreciate his methods and results; as a businessman I am grateful for the value his visits add in terms of customer satisfaction and staff morale. Having gone through barista training with two other organizations I would rate Neville’s teaching and assessment abilities as streets ahead of most instructors, including those I worked with in tertiary institutions.

Neville is a highly skilled, competent and professional barista. Neville provided exceptional barista training to all my staff, covering all aspects of making an outstanding variety of coffee’s. Neville has a sound knowledge of the coffee industry and is experienced in the operation of coffee machines.
Rob Dinneen – Tauranga

Over the last 4 years Neville Morgan has been engaged to provide us with regular barista training for our staff and ongoing coffee machine maintenance. We would thoroughly recommend Neville as a highly skilled barista trainer. As part of the training he has explained how to correctly use and adjust the grinder and espresso machine. He has also introduced us to the latest techniques of extraction, milk texturing and coffee presentation. This has ensured that we have been able to maintain our high standard of coffee service and enhance our position as one of the Mounts leading cafes.
Sarah McDiarmid – Tauranga

Neville Morgan has worked with us in our busy café in the Tauranga CBD. He has helped our staff to better understand the correct use of our espresso equipment and conducted many training sessions to pass on his knowledge of coffee making and machine maintenance. This has enabled us to maintain consistency and a high standard of coffee for our customers.

We own a Magister Stella Professional Espresso Machine supplied by homebaristashop. My wife and I got the Coffee bug 3 years agoStella Professional and bumbled along with a small Breville espresso machine then a larger Breville plus a Breville grinder but never felt we were in control. Our first contact with Neville from homebaristashop was when we purchased a Imex Home Coffee Roaster. Neville has since taught us to make coffee. We now have a Magister Stella Professional Espresso Machine that we cannot fault. Quick to heat ,ample capacity to froth milk and extract coffee continuously a smart looking unit that is user friendly. With the Stella we have a Compak K3 Grinder and a Gene Café Coffee Roaster, all excellent equipment supplied by homebaristashop. We both can now make great coffee consistently. Our green coffee beans are sourced from Neville’s large selection. It can be confusing but fun. Without hesitation we would recommend that if you want to be a better Barista Neville at homebaristashop is your man.
Jim – Ohope Beach

We purchased a Magister KES 100 2 Group espresso machine and consider it has been an excellent purchase. The machine has consistently produced hundreds of cups daily to a very high standard. We also serve a high volume of leaf tea and the Magister has always delivered ample hot water from its programmable water tap. Not only does the machine look great in our busy cafe, our baristas have enjoyed using it and can be proud of the quality coffees they can present to our growing number of regular customers.
