Maybe a quiet cafe.
Some cafe owners wont even want to know you without experience.
Having said that though, I did talk my way into a job at a quiet cafe with just a barista course certificate, a picture or two of my home coffee equipment (he thought I was mad) and an obvious passion for coffee.
In a busier cafe they may not let you near the machine and youd have to work your way up.
I think passion is the key.
