Congratulations to the most recent graduates of the FareStart barista program! The students have been honing their barista skills for nine weeks and it shows.

FareStart’s Youth Barista Training & Education Program has been going strong since 2003. The program provides at-risk youth with the opportunity to build a better future for themselves through job training and placement, life skills, employment counseling, classroom, and on-the-job training for the espresso industry.

Our head trainer, Ross, reports that he had an excellent espresso made with love by Nichole at FareStart’s downtown cafe. Congratulations, all!
