Very brief Oh well, this article as it is right now could be rephrased as "a barista is a person who studied and hopefully knows how to make a good coffee". That's not much. In fact this pretty much sounds like somecompany needed to brand "good coffee we make" and titled their own coffee makers as "barista", because it sounds cool or whatever. I kind of expected some history of the title, and a few attributes of what signifies a barista to exist... Looks like there isn't any? --grin ✎ 07:09, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

As stated in the article, there is no certifying body regulating the use of the word barista, so, yes, any company could call their workers that. Regardless of whether its origin was some company establishing their brand “because it sounds cool or whatever,” the word has become widely understood and used in English. —Wiki Wikardo 06:25, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
