Top 3 Skills You Need To Know To Become A Professional Barista.


   Did you know? “Barista” is an Italian term for a professional espresso coffee maker. In Italy, it takes 4 years to become a   Barista. Baristas don’t make coffee, they “Create It”.


Here are Top 3 skills you must know to become a professional Barista:


  1. You need to make a killer coffee every time

Look, first you need to know what a great coffee should look like and taste like. Then you need to know how to make them right every time. Your customer comes back for your coffee because they trust you can make the same quality coffee every time.

2.       How to impress your clients with your stunning latte art

I still remember 7 years ago how impressed I was when I visited a well-known busy café. The Barista made me a take away coffee with the lid on, can you imagine my surprise when I took off the lid and saw a beautiful Rosetta underneath? I was very impressed! I have since gone back many times and told many people this story. Can you imagine if you will have the skills to pour latte art every time? You will soon build up a loyal client base.

  1. How to pump out multiple coffees that always look and taste great.

 A professional Barista needs to pump out many coffees during coffee rush. So you need to be fast as well! When you can make coffees that look and taste great, and fast, that’s when you become a professional Barista that commands high pay and build up a loyal customer base. If you are buying or starting a cafe, or even own a cafe, this is how you build up a cafe. Click here for more info on cafe buying and building.

For someone who doesn’t have any experience in


the industry, this course is really helpful. I came
