Emirates Cabin Crew undergoes specialized training in the art of coffee. They learn about the origins of coffee, different blends, and the techniques to prepare a flawless cup for every customer. This includes hands-on sessions where they perfect their serving and presentation skills, ensuring that each coffee is delivered with finesse. Notably, First Class passengers are offered their coffee in a choice of exquisite Royal Doulton fine bone mugs or cups, while Business Class passengers sip from elegant fine bone china mugs. Additionally, Emirates maintains strict quality control over the water used in coffee preparation. Regular monitoring and maintenance of water tanks, supply lines, and transportation equipment guarantee the provision of safe and top-quality water for brewing that perfect cup of coffee on board.
