Coffee, liquid sustenance, brewed perfection – no matter what you call it, there's always one person behind the perfect cup: the barista. 

With more than 400 billion cups of coffee consumed each year across the globe, it's no wonder cafes, restaurants, and bars need a well-trained barista to make their coffee perfectly.

But mastering the craft of making coffee isn't easy; it consists of many components, key techniques, and some coffee fundamental knowledge.

Being a barista isn't easy. Providing eager customers with a cup of coffee they will love means going through a process of up to 10 steps! Think along the lines of storing coffee beans, grinding coffee beans, tamping, extracting, splitting milk, and, finally, pouring milk to make an espresso drink.
