Edward Hamrick replied to Zayde Naquib's discussion Feeling Invisible, would love some tips
"In your case I would take a "guerilla marketing" approach to reaching new customers. You could host small events like chess tournaments, charity fundraisers, and even have your regulars pass out first-time customer coupons. I'm…"

"I agree with Jason and will add; these people sound like idiots.  No matter what you do, they will still be idiots and you will have to implement and defend their stupid decisions.  And yes, it is illegal not to pay employees for time…"

"That doesn't sound like a good situation!  Remember that at the end of the day, you have no responsibility beyond what you agreed to.  It is not your baby.  Don't let guilt keep you in a bad position.     If things…"

When pressure builds something blows...Frustrations and tempers

I'm a salary based manager at the shop I run. We've been open since February of this year. I was informed a week ago that my salary is based on a 60 hour work week. I've been pulling about 98 since we've opened. The agreement I had with my immediate boss (the managing partner) was $1,800 a month after deductions. The partner who owns 51% of the business is paying me $1,536.30. I've obviously been shafted. At first, I was understanding about the whole deal because it IS a start-up and the owners…See More

Edward Hamrick commented on Alex Johnson's group Coffee and Cigarettes
"Has anyone seen "Coffee and Cigarettes?" (2003) The cast includes The White Stripes, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, Steve Buschemi, Alfred Molina, and others... It's great if movies with no plot or action don't…"

Edward Hamrick replied to Florence Sook Ching Lee's discussion where do I go from here?
"Coffee culture on my island (Guam) is about a decade or so behind the U.S. Mainland and the rest of the coffee world. Customers generally have under-developed palets and shop owners capitalize on that. If a barista here wants to hone his skills…"

Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
barista, manager, barista trainer, home barista, coffee enthusiast, industry professional, consultant, service tech/repair
Where are you located? ( City and Country )

How many years have you been in the industry?

If you are a barista or shop, are you interested in a barista exchange with another coffee shop/barista?

About Me:
I'm from the island of Guam. I've been in the coffee industry for the past 12 years. I started as a Barista at a Gloria Jean's and after a couple of years decided to venture into the independent coffee houses. I've helped a handful of independent shops open both on Guam and in Hawaii. I've sold Nuova Simonelli, Crem, and Astoria machines for wholesale companies. I currently manage a start-up coffee shop in Guam's tourist district.
About My Company:
I represent Cafe Angelino. We specialize in frappes from scratch, traditional european espresso beverages, and signature espresso and "regular" coffee drinks. Our shop offers a mix of Asian-American food, a variety of ice cream treats, chinese blooming teas, home-made chai, and coffee beverages exclusive to Cafe Angelino...until another barista comes in and decides he wants to sell the same thing the same way at his shop and call it the same thing... At Cafe Angelino we offer a little something for everyone's tastes.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
It's an industry that is constantly growing and changing. It fuses old traditions with new methods and philosophies; and challenges those of us who choose to stay in the industry to stay vigilant but flexible in our sub-cultures.
