Find out more • Take the survey

Following our Roundtables with key industry figures over 2016, it has become apparent that employers have struggled to recruit for key roles within their businesses and that baristas are struggling to see career paths in industry. Over the spring and summer of 2017 we are running a series of Roundtables and a survey so that we can better understand the opportunities and challenges when building a career. The project is called Barista Life. Over the summer we’ll provide baristas with information on how they can advance their careers and industry with insight on how we can better attract, train and retain our talent.

We started United Baristas in 2015 with a Marketplace to allow baristas to buy and sell coffee equipment. We wanted to help keep coffee equipment in use for its full working life and enable baristas to more easily buy and sell coffee equipment that better met their needs. The helps to protect the environment, improve business viability and lift the quality of coffee-making.
