Barista is the Italian term for coffee maker. Since coffee lovers (not addicts) really concern about the taste and quality of their coffee, coffee shops with skilled barista often get more customers. The crucial knowledge of a barista includes the correct operation, maintenance and programming of the machine, grinding and tamping methods, extraction times, water temperature and quality, micro milk frothing, free pouring, latte art, roasting, coffee plant cultivation, drying methods, correct storage, renewable methods of disposal, recycling of the coffee and packaging used. Impressive, huh?
