Barista Guild of Europe’s 2015 Chair, Dale Harris, joined us in Manchester to talk about “the Post-Apocalyptic Barista’s Handbook,” where research and development have made technology king and our carefully honed skills of dosing and tamping obsolete. In his talk, Dale outlines how the role of the barista will need to change if we want it to be a sustainable career and why we should go ahead and make those changes now–by investing in people–if we want to be able to keep drinking tasty coffee, full stop.
