NEGSpresso is back up and running in 2018. This was a wonderful initiative last year as a result of the Year 9/10 Commerce course – Running Your Own Business. Mrs Watson and Mrs Doyle have decided that as the facilities are in place we should open it up again even though the Commerce unit will not be run again until next year.
17 girls have now completed the Coffee Making Course at Armidale TAFE. They have learnt not only how to make coffee, but that coffee is the 2nd most traded commodity in the world after oil. They have also learnt the two types of coffee – arabica used for espresso and robusta used for instant coffee. They now know the difference between a macchiato and a flat white! They have been told that in Italy it takes 2000 hours of coffee making to be called a barista!
NEGSpresso is open for business selling coffee, chais and hot chocolates, to staff, students (all girls and not just from Yr 9) and parents at the following times: Tuesday & Thursday 8am to 8:35am, Tuesday lunch 1:05 to 1:35. The girls are rostered on so that they can put their coffee making skills to good use. You can purchase a card from NEGSpresso or Mrs Helen Smith. 2 drinks $6, 3 drinks $9 and 5 drinks $15.
School students are only able to purchase chais or hot chocolate.
