advice related to working at a coffee shop would help too

I started working at a well established french coffee shop about 3 months ago; and without any previous experience working with food or drinks, I am now working full time without any problems!. Here are some tips to succeed as a barista!.

1!. Listen to everything during training, even the small things!. There's a lot of equipment to use!. Practice using the espresso machine for instance!.

2!. Have an open mind and a positive attitude!. Having a fun personality also helps when working at a coffee shop, as you will be interacting with a lot of different personalities!.

3!. Memorizing the drinks and how to make them is KEY! Group the drinks together like : espresso based drinks (lattes, cappuccinos, frappuccinos, etc!.) , coffees, smoothies, teas, chai, iced, hot, frozen drinks!. This will make everything so much easier on yourself!. Doing some research will help you memorize everything faster!. Remember to know which milks you carry (whole, skim, 1%, 2%, soy, light cream), and which sugars you carry (liquid, in the raw, artificial sweetner, granulated, etc!.)

Do not be nervous about spilling things because it happens to everyone!. Just don't rush or get flustered because an extra ten seconds to make a drink is better than rushing and dropping the drink and having to go make it again! People will be rude sometimes, but that happens everywhere and it shouldn't bother you at all!. Just try your best and I'm sure you will be fine!. Good luck!Www@FoodAQ@Com

sounds like its not the job for you!. i tend to be clumsy ever since i grew up!. cant get used to this big body!. i wish i was small again!.

they usually have caps, am i right!? move slowly till you get used to it!. not too slow or you will look foolish!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

they should train you!.!.!.!. Www@FoodAQ@Com
