Along with the Art Docent program, there is also a Barista program that is opening opportunities for the youth in San Ysidro. A usual day in a Barista shift is practicing different types of coffees, ranging from lattes to espresso shots. Throughout their program, they experiment with flavors and coffee techniques for their final project presenting their signature drinks.
The purpose of the Barista program is to prepare them for the aspired Coffee Community Casa Familiar hopes to build in San Ysidro. It is in their hopes to train the student Baristas for a coffee cart near the Casa Familiar estates, or more specifically The FRONT. More importantly, Casa Familiar hopes that this program will give opportunities to the youth of San Ysidro to become leaders and entrepreneurs that will be San Ysidro’s future.
