Coffee is about more than making latte art. Always make it from your heart.
Shirley is a barista and trainer dedicated to helping people grow.
Shirley came into coffee as a Holistic Training programme participant in 2011 and has made coffee into her career ever since. She simultaneously discovered a fondness for coffee and a passion for teaching during a cafe internship with the HT programme. Shirley was put in charge of training part-timers, and quickly realised that she loved to teach and share her skills with people interested in coffee. It’s been 8 years now that she’s been with Bettr Barista.
Favourite drink: Double shot Latte 7oz
Fun fact: She may not look that sporty, but Shirley enjoys playing basketball!
