Latte Lab

Latte Lab 1 Latte Lab 2 Latte Lab 5

Wellington is known for its world-class coffee, and many of our city’s top baristas have come straight from the Latte Lab, located in our School of Hospitality on Cuba St. Here, our students serve customers and prepare coffee, smoothies, fresh juices, and café food.

The Latte Lab is run by our students learning front-of-house, barista, and café skills. There are eight coffee machines available, so there’s never a queue.
