Role of the Primary Barista
Under normal conditions, operating the
espresso machine is a one-person job. When the
primary Barista asks for help during peak periods
it is important to note that he or she is still

This eliminates confusion and maintains the integrity
of the finished beverages.
Role of the Secondary Barista
The secondary Barista should take direction from
the primary Barista and do what is needed to expedite
as many drinks as possible. This limits customer
wait time and ensures that the drinks are served
in the order they were set up. Normally, this task
is steaming milk or continually running espresso
