Barista Job Description

Customer service. You greet the customer as they come to the register. You take their drink order, get them their food if they want it. If it's busy, you work as a team to complete this. The bar drinks can sometimes be tricky to make due to the many varieties that people ask for. Steaming milk can be a challenge to get the right amount of foam. Being very polite and customer oriented and willing to work as team is extremely important.
