Assessing the quality of work of baristas with a barista training checklist


Using a barista training checklist to assess the quality of work of baristas is an effective way for training supervisors to monitor the progress of baristas and ensure they meet the high standards of the shop. A checklist can help supervisors stay organized and ensure that all skills are being properly tested and evaluated.


It is important that baristas are knowledgeable about the ingredients used in drinks, safety protocols, and customer service. Thus, by using a barista training checklist supervisors can assess whether baristas are able to consistently produce high-quality drinks, provide excellent customer service and have a comprehensive understanding of the job.
