Shipping calculated at checkout.

Did you know that in addition to being a stationery shop, Nueva Era is also a micro-café?

We are very happy to offer private or group (6 people maximum) espresso preparation lessons!

This course is for beginners as well as coffee enthusiasts. :)

A reduced cost is available for Indigenous, Black, and People of Color individuals using the code: BIPOC

During this training, taught by Nicole, you will discover how to prepare an espresso, the steps to follow to adjust the flavours and also a bit about how to properly steam milk with a professional espresso machine.

We will taste some coffee together and discuss aromas and flavors. Then you will have the opportunity to practice and prepare your own shot behind the machine.

We will provide coffee, oat milk and all the necessary equipment for the experience!

All participants will also get a 10% discount on all stationery products at regular price, as well as on bags of coffee beans.

The training lasts approximately 1h30 and is offered in French or English.
