our baristas

Be Brave. Discover.

We encourage our people to be greater than their own self-imposed limitations.

Each barista and manager’s career in our stores is a personal journey to discover their own passions. We support our staff in moving closer to work and we assist them in starting their own businesses – their careers in Flight has to challenge them to dream bigger.

Our baristas are championship ready. This means each barista is taken through our barista academy where they are trained in coffee appreciation, the art of making the perfect cup and the technical skills to master the perfect espresso. This is not only a 2 to 3 year training experience, but an ongoing journey of understanding coffee origins, farming methods and roasting. All our baristas are encouraged to compete in local and international barista competitions – this allows them to discover the ever-changing world of coffee.
