B is for Barista.
The barista’s role is a crucial one in the coffee supply chain. The best baristas have refined palettes, know their equipment, and have excellent interpersonal skills.
It can take years to gain a deep understanding of espresso preparation, so if your local barista knows their stuff, you should take advantage of this!
Talking to the baristas in your local shop can be a great way to learn more about the coffee you’re drinking, and as a barista myself, there is nothing better than talking coffee.
