Prevent Customers from Grabbing the Wrong Order(item on counter)

Started by Rick Astley in Retail Coffee Business. Last reply by Macallie Atkinson 11 hours ago. 3 Replies

My shop runs the problem when we are extremely busy that customers sometimes grab the wrong item or an item that isn't theirs when it is set up on the counter. Given we do coffee, small food items, smoothies, and baked goods, some of them come up at different times. We have one receipt printer and we call orders by name. The most common example is a customer grabbing the wrong smoothie. They see a red one, for example, and they think its theirs because they ordered a strawberry smoothie. Whats…Continue

No more regional competitions : Latest news from the SCAA

Started by Macallie Atkinson in Barista Competitions & Events 11 hours ago. 0 Replies

It appears that there is no discussion taking place in the Barista Exchange about the latest upset involving the SCAA's decision to pull the plug on RBC... Does anyone on this site even care? How is it not a major discussion point? As a 5 year member of the BGA, my membership has been violated by the fact that the SCAA did not reach out for any help or feedback before announcing the news via SPRUDGE.I know I am not the only one who is totally upset at the fact that now there are only 50…Continue

Need advice on where to start

Started by Alex Morales in Baristas Looking for Work. Last reply by Alex Morales Jun 30. 2 Replies

I spoke to some friends and they said I needed experience on the strada which I don't have, and not sure how to get easily. I am not in a big…Continue

Japanese Coffee Culture?

Started by Trương thanh in Coffee & Roasting Jun 23. 0 Replies

Evening all. So I read a few years ago when I first came across Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee, that 80% of it is shipped to Japan... I was surprised when I heard this, just because JBM coffee is so highly thought of (albeit also considered gimmicky/over-rated by some) so I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on this- Quả óc chó giá rẻ Does Japan have a really great coffee scene or is there some other explanation? At the moment I'm…Continue
