I want that

Today was my first day back to work after soaking up serious magic in Disneyland. I felt refreshed and inspired… Ready to show up and do something I’m loving more all the time. But when a friend leaves you some new espresso to try and you like it, but feel like you never hit the sweet spot what do you do? I want to learn a solid approach to dial-a-spro…

Boom. Roasted

What coffee will I use? What’s my signature drink? Is my milk good enough? Will I really feel like throwing up?

Er, how about I take Pele’s advice and just read the SCAA rules n regs until I know them by heart for now ?? Aaaand maybe ill be inspired for my sig drink by this:!

Who Are Ya?

I’ve found that I get wrapped up in coffee fads. Even silly things like hearing a friend talk about a coffee a certain way and then I’ll catch myself passing that on to a customer, instead of my true taste experience.

Do I actually know that this Sulawesi is sweeter than most Indonesian coffees? Nope, but it’s a peaberry so I’m right, right….?

So I’m gonna continue to soak up what my friends are doing with coffees and how they are doing it, cause they do it really freaking good, but as a service to myself and others I’m gonna try and establish a deeper connection with coffee ways and words… Who knows maybe I’ll set a trend haha. I mean I’m constantly becoming a Barista so it’s kinda my job to connect more and more.

let there be Capp

I think I’m ready for the Year of the Cappuccino… Not sure what it will include, but now is the time to step my understanding and execution of the capp up! In the meantime, I’m getting better at latte art and bean organizing I think?
