#BeAnAwesome: Coffee Barista
What will I do?
Coffee quality control and beverage innovation.
Is it for me?
The role of a barista is not confined to just making coffee, because he or she is an important asset of a café. He or she needs to understand people and, well, coffee! Constantly delivering the best customer service and striving for more coffee knowledge is what is needed of us.
How much will I earn?
The barista career is not a highly paid one. Salary varies from company to company and starts from RM1,200.
Who will employ me?
Some of the well-established companies are:
- Coffex Coffee Malaysia
- Classic Coffee Malaysia
- Dankoff Coffee Specialist
Or perhaps you could join one of the many independent cafés which are currently growing rapidly throughout Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Penang, etc.
Coffee is a never-ending topic. Therefore, being a barista is not a dead-end job. From growing coffee plants to agricultural research, all the way to competing in national or international championships, the areas of specialisation go on and on.
