Learning to Make Good Coffee, Suggestions?

I have this dream of opening up a cozy coffee shop one day in my neighborhood.

I have the baking part down (my own personal skills and recipes are good, although I am taking classes to hone them), and I make good coffee with steamed milk at home, but I don't know how to make a good espresso based beverage- latte, mocha, cappuccino, etc.

Does anyone have an suggestions for learning such skills? Are there good books on the topic of coffee in general?

I live in Boston and would love if anyone knew of classes I could take in the area. Would anyone in the area be willing to teach me?
