Train the Trainers
Coffee shops and cafés often face the problem of ensuring quality on a day-today basis. Train-the-Trainers is specifically aimed at the person(s) in charge of the quality - managers, supervisors or lead baristas. The goal is to build a foundation for in-house training and provide techniques and tools for training baristas.
