Students steam ahead
THE students of Emerald State High School are changing the future of coffee in town, one cup at a time.
The hospitality students at the high school are learning to make coffee with two new machines, donated through a community development grant from BMA.
"It will allow us to deliver our Prepare and Serve Espresso Coffee course and we are hoping to make kids more employable," hospitality teacher Angela Gilbert said.
Staff members are excited by the new coffee machines as they will be the taste-testers on the beverages.
"Staff will be able to sample and some afternoons we will invite the community to come in and sample," Ms Gilbert said. "We will look at the different types of coffee beans, grind, temperature of milk and getting good froth on a cappuccino.
"It's a fun course for them to do - it's practical and they enjoy it."
