Cardiff Big Issue vendors get a coffee break with barista training.
Little Man Coffee helps Welsh vendors escape the daily grind.
Big Issue vendors swapped magazines for macchiatos recently after undergoing barista training in a Cardiff coffee shop.
Two sellers gave it the beans in Cardiff’s Little Man Coffee to work on alternative skills that will put them in good stead with future employers.
Resident barista Laura Bradford gave insight into crafting the perfect cup of coffee by tasking vendors with grinding beans and working on machines as well as providing skilful final flourishes like making patterns in cream. She is planning to provide one-on-one sessions with other vendors in the future.
