Research into working in the coffee industry
In 2017, United Baristas carried out a research project into work opportunities and challenges into the coffee industry. We meet with hundreds of baristas from the UK in a series of roundtables, gathered industry data, and employment opportunity insights. Much of our current work is based on these insights as we work to develop life-long career progression for people working in the industry.
