Preparing coffee



Do you want to learn how to make the perfect coffee as a beginner professional? Then this activity is for you! During this activity, you will not only learn how to select the best ingredients, but also how to choose the right equipment and materials to make a delicious coffee. Additionally, you will learn how to choose the appropriate tableware to professionally serve the coffee. You will learn how to use the coffee-making equipment to brew and prepare the perfect coffee. And when the coffee is ready, you will learn how to clean and organize the equipment, workspace, and materials used properly according to protocol and company guidelines. In short, with this activity, you will become the basic expert in preparing and serving delicious coffee!

When you have earned all the badges, you will have achieved the following result:
  • The coffee is prepared and served.
  • The workspace is cleaned.

To earn badges, you must exhibit the corresponding behavior:
  • use necessary ingredients, materials, and resources cost-effectively/efficiently;
  • prepare coffee according to company recipe and expertly select ingredients and tableware;
  • work in an orderly, systematic, and hygienic manner.

Do you also want to achieve these results and skills? You can! Step by step, you can develop and refine them through the Open Badges, which are an integral part of this activity. These badges provide a structured and stimulating way to increase your knowledge and skills and to promote your professional development towards a Barista basis. Whether you are a beginner in the world of coffee or have some experience, these badges will help you distinguish yourself as an expert and excel in your work.

This activity offers a wide range of underlying competencies, including Using Materials and Resources and Focusing on Customer Needs. These two competencies are essential for achieving success in the world of coffee. Fortunately, these two competencies can also be recognized and validated through Open Badges - your coach is ready to guide and support you in earning these badges and developing your skills and knowledge.
