Hopefully, you do! We recommend that you review the company's website before arriving at your interview to familiarize yourself with what coffee brews they offer. Begin by telling the interviewer if you like coffee or espresso. If you are a coffee nut, share your favorite brews! The interviewer is simply seeking how much experience you already have to better understand how much training will be necessary if you are selected for the job.
