If you’ve ever been interested in becoming a barista, this should be a valuable resource for you and also if you’ve ever had to interview baristas, we hope you find this podcast helpful. It’s also an interesting look into how the coffee industry works and what makes great coffee possible. Some of our favorite quotes from this podcast episode include:

It’s our job really, I think more than anything to be hearing what people are saying and let them speak to us and sort of be vessels for that without forcing anything upon them. -Matthew McShane

It’s kinda a mix. It all depends, so we’ll hire if someone has really great experience and they interview well and we vibe, then we’ll hire them. But, I also do like hiring someone who has no experience but has a passion for coffee because I can’t force someone to be passional at all about coffee, but I can train everything else. So, it’s a balancing act between the two. -Ashley Gardner

There’s definitely room for growth in coffee. I think you just have to tough it out a little bit…I think everyone gets restless and you want to stop being a barista and do something else because you wanna grow but like, I want to tell a lot of people to just chill. Being a barista is pretty great. -Mike Jones
