Starbucks offers a rigorous certification program to their top seasoned baristas where they are taught over a three month period all the minutiae of their top product—coffee. A Coffee Master is required to know everything from the effect of growth elevation on acidity, to the flavor profiles associated with every growing region. As a final trial before certification, a barista must hold a successful seminar and tasting open to the general public and attended by a panel of Starbucks Coffee Masters. Knowing your stuff is essential, but getting as many seats filled as possible sure helps your chances of connecting with your regulars—and the voting panel.
