While we regularly celebrate the work of emergency services personnel, we don’t tend to spend as much time thinking about the hard work of baristas. Many people, however, rely on their baristas to make their morning cup of coffee. Without their morning cup of Joe, they’re in trouble. 

Coffee has become a truly central part of all our lives. It’s something that we drink every day to help us focus, start the day, and brush away the cobwebs.

Now Almond Breeze – the alternative milk manufacturer – has launched Barista Day, an event which the company says will celebrate the people behind the beans and coffee machines that keeps us all energized. 

History of Barista Day

Almond Breeze wants to use the day to not only say a big thank you to all of the people who grow, process, deliver and prepare coffee drinks, but also advertise its Almond Breeze Barista Blend.

Like other milk-alternative producers out there, Almond Breeze knows that professional milk substitute products need to have different qualities from regular consumer products. Almond Breeze Barista Blend is a creamy, dairy-free product that behaves in a similar way to regular cow’s milk when preparing coffee drinks. 

Almond Breeze decided that with so many people now working as baristas, the time had come to celebrate their efforts. The company saw that there were no events celebrating baristas, even though millions of people relied on their services. Celebrating the “hardworking bartenders of the morning” was something that the company felt that it was obliged to do. 

There’s a reason the modern coffee scene is so vibrant and thriving. It all comes down to the work of thousands of people in the industry working hard to deliver exceptional coffee to the people around them. Without them, the coffee that people enjoy from their local coffee houses would not be as delicious as it is. A lot of effort goes in behind the scene – much of it unrecognized. Barista Day is a chance to make that hard work known so that people can celebrate it. 

How to celebrate Barista Day

Celebrating Barista Day is just about as easy as it gets. All you have to do is go down to your local coffee house and celebrate the baristas who work there by buying one of their freshly prepared coffee. 

You don’t have to go alone, of course. Why not take a friend or family member with you? Why not get as many people involved as you can? Surely, you know a few people who would love to communicate their gratitude. If you’re a coffee-lover, spread the word on social media and let all of your friends know that barista day is here. 

Almond Breeze also wants people to show their barista their support. Baristas are used to taking orders and diligently preparing delicious drinks. What they don’t get much are words of affirmation from grateful patrons. Barista Day is your chance to show them that you care and that what they’re doing is super important to you.
