I agree... read as much as you can and apply that toward being a better barista. There are LOTS of things to learn. Three of the most important would be a thorough understanding of how the equipment functions, proper drink preparation and customer service. Without focusing on those 3 things you won't be giving the job 100%. Also have fun while doing this!
