IM Baseline Testing

IM 7.03 Cezve / Ibrik Baseline Test

In this video, Alexandra demonstrates an approach to brewing her cezve that would successfully pass the barista baseline test for cezve. During a practical certification event, a Barista Hustle Coach will ask a barista to explain their recipe before they begins brewing. We present this video as an example of what a Coach is looking for in a baseline test.

To successfully complete the baseline test for the cezve, a barista must demonstrate the utmost care and attention to portioning the ingredients and safely managing the heat source. A flame burner, if used, should be ignited during the test, not before, and the flame must be extinguished before the end of the testing time.
