Cheat Sheet for Starbucks Partners
If you are reading this, you most likely have just begun your journey as a barista. First off, all of us here at Barista Life™ would like to welcome you and congratulate you on taking the leap of faith. If you stick with us, you will be just fine.
You must be learning drinks, you must also be learning how overwhelming it all can be at first.
After the first day or two, your mind will begin to change on you. All you are going to think about is pumps, shots, QASA, deployment, and coffee no matter where you are. You will literally start to dream about pumps and steaming milk during your after-work naps.
No matter how much you think you know your pumps and shots, we bet that there will be a time when you show up to work and they immediately throw you on bar. Your brain locks up, and no matter how hard you think, you can't remember the pumps! Don't worry, we have all been there, but we want it to be a bit easier for you.
Use this Barista Cheat Sheet as your own personal assistant. Print it out, laminate it, memorize it, heck, even tattoo it on your arm (not recommended)
You can print out either the normal size (8.5"x11") size to leave in the backroom, and we also made a small, pocket-sized version to take with you on bar!
Hopefully this little cheat sheet will help you make it through that tough training period!
Good luck & Welcome to the Barista Life™
