For many of us word barista is very closely related to coffee but I feel there is much more to know if one really wants to be a great barista. We have talked a lot about milk, water and spices used in recipes and coffee brewing. But one thing we should talk a lot more is tea. Tea culture is something we should bring to next level in our coffee shops as there is more and more people bouncing between these two beautiful drinks.
We love coffee a LOT but there is always a bit of a quirky feeling about the waste left over from our favorite beverage.
