Youths trained to become baristas

In its efforts to help ease unemployment problem in the state and promote Nagaland coffee, Land Resource Department (LRD) has been conducting various trainings for unemployed youths as well as coffee growers.
With an objective to equip unemployed youth with necessary skills required to become a barista, the department conducted an intensive five days “barista training” at Directorate of Land Resource, Kohima, which concluded on Saturday.
Seven unemployed youths namely Tokaito Achumi, Vito Swu, Nzanthung, Inatoli Chishi, Angel Naro and Alno Kennao from different districts of the state, one of whom is from Rajasthan, completed the training and received certificates from Director of Census Operation (DCO), Director of Citizen Registration (DCR), Anoop Khinchi.
Speaking at the valedictory programme, Anoop Khinchi lauded the department for organising such trainings and exuded confidence that these trainees would become ambassadors of “Naga coffee”.
Congratulating the youths on completion of the training, he expressed hope that they would enjoy their work as Baristas. Khinchi said they working as baristas would indirectly encourage the farmers to grow more coffee which in turn would enhance the lives of the farmers and the state’s economy as well.
LRD additional director, Albert Ngullie said through the training the department aims to impart world-class skills, create awareness on benefits of drinking coffee and generate employment opportunities by engaging more local youths.
