A coffee morning with a difference took place recently at the Waterside Bistro in Totnes with customers able to appreciate why coffee served at the popular restaurant tastes so good. The informal event brought together local supplier, Voyager Coffee Roasters of Buckfastleigh and the Waterside team led by chef/owner Matt Buzzo to promote the art of the very best in coffee making.
Restaurant managers and service team members were presented with Advanced Barista training awards and then followed “coffee tastings” for interested customers.
Matt Buzzo is keen to support and further the growing reputation of Totnes’ café/coffee culture by investing in formal Barista Training for his service team at the Waterside Bistro and to publicly recognise their barista talents of being able to serve a wonderful cup of coffee every time and talk to customers about the coffee’s origins from bean to cup.
The Coffee Academy at Voyager’s head office at Buckfastleigh, is an accredited BSA and City & Guilds Barista Training Centre and it has recently been recognised nationally as The Best Training Initiative of the Year. It was here that the Waterside team underwent Professional Barista Coffee Training.
Voyager’s Paul Rigby who presented the awards said afterwards: “We are pleased and proud to offer support and train the serving team. Matt is always concerned about the detail and ingredients in what he does through his food and drink offer.”
Lewis Meek, one of Waterside’s delighted recipients of the Advanced Barista award added: “We do get people asking questions about the coffee we serve, so the training has definitely helped us all. I’m really proud to have formal recognition and the qualification and to be able to call myself a coffee barista. I feel much more confident now ”
