Coffee career tips from Chris Baca

Want to build a successful career in coffee? Chris Baca shares the things he wishes someone had told him earlier.

With more and more baristas interested in building a career in the coffee industry, we love it when people share their personal journeys and insights.

Chris explains that its probably not your coffee-making skills holding you back. Rather learn how to better lead and help others, communicate with your audience and elevate the organisations you’re involved in.

I talk about these things not because I think I’m perfect at them, but because every day I work to improve in them, and I wish someone would have told me this 10 years ago.
