What made you choose Espresso House?

- My interest in coffee made me curious about working as a Barista. I myself was inspired by a Barista in my hometown, so I already knew then I wanted to try it out. I’ve made many friends and got to be a part of a team where we could grow together and develop as individuals. The great communication between Baristas, all kinds of managers as well as headoffice makes me content to stay in this company. I feel seen and we are given opportunities to challenge ourselves and grow. I’ve gained an incredible amount of confidence because of this and I’m very thankful for continuing to fight when it’s been tough - it has made me stronger and sure has been profitable.

What have you learned while working with us?

- There are plenty of things I’ve learned while working in this business. I’ve learned to tolerate and work effectively with stress which I found very important and necessary to self-growth. I’ve learned to challenge my limits and extend them further. Besides all that, thanks to the opportunities I’ve gotten, I’ve also learned the art behind coffee which is what I’m most passioned about.

What is the best about working at Espresso House?

- The highlight of my job is developing and building a stronger me. I get to accept and move on if there’s an obstacle instead of going back and giving up – because the show must go on. I’ve made many friends while working here and creating a bond with them it has made a very effective performance together behind the bar. I get to witness my colleagues develop and become more confident in themselves too and that’s very beautiful. Therefore, the best thing about working at Espresso House for me is development, opportunities, and since I’m a Master Barista I’m obliged to mention… coffee!
