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.
