Learn How To Be A Barista With Eben Mission

We recognise the importance of all persons who wish to work being able to find meaningful and rewarding jobs. Our Disability Job Training and Employment Program helps overcome barriers in employment for people with disabilities. Today, we’re going to explore our Barista Coffee Training course supported by Normcore Coffee and how this course has helped Julia to develop her barista skills.

About Our NDIS Disability Job Training in Rhodes

Ebenezer Mission provides a variety of employment and training opportunities for people with disabilities. Our goal is to improve our participants’ job prospects and opportunities.

At our NDIS Disability Job Training in Rhodes, we can help you achieve your career and life goals by teaching you new skills or brushing up on old ones. Our program also contains a retail location and a coffee cart where you can browse our products while sipping a cup of coffee our talented participants prepare.

During your barista training, we’ll show you how to make the best cup of coffee and use a coffee machine like an expert. This course will teach you how to froth milk, brew anything from an espresso to a double macchiato with a splash of milk, and properly clean and maintain a coffee machine.

Meet John

John is a coffee lover who lives in Sydney. John, who has mid austism, has taken a step closer to realizing his dream of becoming a expert barista with the help of Eben Mission. When John’s Care Coordinator and Support Worker first met with him, they did what we usually do at Eben Mission: they listened and learned about John’s interests so they could best support him in living the life he wanted.

John began to build his barista skills with the help of Eben Mission and Normcore Coffee and then underwent some local training.

“I enjoy the space and freedom to explore and better understand how to make excellent coffee”

John is now doing what he loves every Wednesday and Thursday as a part-time barista employed by Ebenezer Mission.
