The Coffee Master Program at Starbucks is basically a way to sell more at-home coffee. Partners go to classes and study hard, learning everything about Starbucks coffees from the moment their planted in the ground to the moment they hit your tongue and are able to tell you the in-depth kind of knowledge that many coffee connoisseurs may be interested in knowing. They have to recertify every year in order to maintain the Coffee Master title, and they get to wear the black aprons, which I think look the best.
Too bad I’m part of the licensed store catagory and can’t do this. :/
