Barista Courses – a complete understanding
Barista Courses are more than just the flavour of the moment. Or just the Italian word for ‘bartender’ and the serving of espressos. Barista originally only referred to those who sold both coffee and alcoholic drinks in coffee houses when it was first imported into Italy by Venetian merchants in 1645.
Once Baristas were simply taught the traditional method of grinding coffee, mixing with hot water and plenty of sugar. Today, the art of the Barista includes creating the professional, signature smooth and decorative frothed milk finish, which elevates an ordinary cup to a divine experience. The skills of the Barista are very much in high demand everywhere among a new sophisticated coffee drinking culture.
Importantly, coffee drinkers have become more discerning and no longer passive about understanding more about the experience. They want to learn and become better informed about the beans, the roasting, and the flavours. The knowledge and passion of a fully trained Barista is key to today’s customer desire for engagement and service satisfaction.
