The Business of Barista

Hi Guys,

Fernando here. I just wanted to drop in some great training videos if you have ever been interested in becoming a barista yourself.

The video discusses:

How to make Amazing Espresso: 5 Easy Steps

  1. Grind Fresh Coffee
  2. Wipe out brewing cup
  3. Press Coffee down into the cup and give it a twist
  4. Ensure there is no residue or coffee left on the filter
  5. Allow to percolate for 25 seconds

How to stretch milk for the perfect coffee: 7 Easy Steps

  1. Purge the system of air in order to NOT make bubbles.
  2. Change the texture of the milk by listening for a fizz sound before it goes above body temperature.
  3. When the milk becomes too hot to hold, it’s “done.”
  4. Wait a 10-15 seconds allowing any air to come to the surface.
  5. Knock the bottom of the cup on the counter to release any more air.
  6. Swirl the milk a bit until you can see the reflection of the lights in it. Now it is ready.
  7. Pour milk into coffee (swirl the coffee a bit before beginning).

Watch the video for more details. I hope that you will be able to implement this in your home. Peace! Fernando.
