Baristi Unite! Matt, Add MillRock/Modular Brand Group to the list of "Current Partners" time for us to step up and sponsor the Barista Exchange...we would be proud to support this community. Send my office the paperwork and we'll cut a check today.
I am always inspired by your genuine conviction to make our industry a better place for all of us. Thank you for bringing THE platform; larger than I ever imagined possible.
I actually took interest in Barista Exchange long before I became a member. I began enjoying coffee over the past few years but before that I was not a coffee drinker at all. My newest employment landed me in the POS business and fortunately my new love for coffee came in handy as the product my company sells is geared for cafes. I wanted to get to know more about the coffee industry and the people in it. Reading on BX and speaking in coffee shops, I have really taken to the whole community and am very happy that my work is [somewhat] intertwined with the industry.
Thanks Matt for putting together such a great site!
Hey Matt I love BX! I've found awesome info on most of the big decisions i've had to make over the past couple months while trying to get the doors open to my shop. I also like to just read old threads; being a newbie to the industry hearing about how other ppl have dealt with equiptment and service issue has really helped me to plan for opening day. thanks for setting this thing up - an ABC roasting class is on my to do list so hope to see you guys again soon!
