Everyone is familiar with the way Starbucks trains its potential employees.
Usually, the applicants need to enroll in a short course where they will be taught how to become effective baristas. Of course, since this training will involve the use of heavy machinery and the disclosure of recipe secrets, you can imagine that this short course will require a fee.
The same is true for those who want to master the art of making boba tea.
If you are currently living in the Philippines, you may be aware that this beverage is becoming a household name.
It is the type of cold drink that can be enjoyed by everyone from the summer months up to the cold, Christmas season.
While making boba tea may seem very easy to do, you have to understand that there are special techniques and better equipment that will ensure that the product you are making is the best one. Thus, a short course is offered to those who would like to create milk or boba teas for a living. The course is very short, usually requiring a day or two, and the tuition fee is quite affordable.
The course is all about creating the perfect blend of bubble tea by hand or by machine. It is very important for the servers of bubble tea to take these short courses because they will learn how to handle the machinery that they need to use regularly.
The equipment will enable them to serve customers better.
With these machines, the time it takes to prepare the beverage will be cut in half.
There are two kinds of machines that the expert baristas will show to the students.
First, there is the automatic sealing machine, which is responsible for sealing the tops of the cups with clear, plastic film.
You can manipulate the machine in such a way as to show the date and time of the preparation, as well as the company name.
Another machine is called the fructose machine, which is responsible for measuring the amount of fructose that needs to be added into the mix.
A lot of establishments do not have the equipment, opting instead to measure sugar mechanically.
However, you will find that this machine is vital to use, particularly if the customer is diabetic.
Of course, the most important thing that a potential barista will learn is to prepare boba tea without wasting precious ingredients.
How is this done?
There are supplies that are imprinted with measure lines to guide the server on the exact amount of ingredients to put in the mixture, based on the size of the serving.
Finally, potential baristas will be taught the rules and regulations of the job.
This will include safety and cleanliness ethics that need to be followed strictly.
Oh, and yes, we do offer these training sessions.
