What is it like to be a full time barista?

Working in a small café making drinks and pastries all day is very enticing to me, but I have no idea what that entails.

Hey Ani,

Typically you can expect it to be very fast paced with mixed shifts/hours and of course customer facing!

Keep in mind the different types of people that will walk through the doors, some GREAT, some maybe not so great so flexibility will be key, good interpersonal skills and the ability to work under pressure!

In return, I hope you will get a discount on their coffee and pastries!
Thank you comment icon Agreed! Another thing to note is that in addition to making coffee and pastries comes administrative tasks, like inventory counts, opening and closing registers, etc. Samantha DeStefano
