My name is Gabe and in May I will be rubbernecking the outer rim of the US. I've been a barista for four years and in coffee for six. I decided to take this trip when a trip to Milan to go work at a friends cafe fell through. Our original plans were to fly into Madrid and leatherneck our way to Milan to go work for a friend, Miguel. But Miguel said it wouldn't be possible anymore due to his decision to sell his cafe to a very impatient buyer. So I had been saving money for about 18 months when I said, "Hey, lets just trek the US!" When my company was finally in agreement we mapped out a trip across the outer rims of the US. We are going to have to stop and work in a few cities or towns to make it all the way and by our estimation (based on destinations, time spent at each destination, and money) it will take us between 8 and 12 months. I thought, "How cool would it be to pick up shifts at different coffee houses along the way!" I was wondering, if anyone out there is interested, if they might want to pick up a traveling barista for a day or three, to pour in their store. Just an idea I wanted to throw out to the community. Feel free to bash me or to support me. What can I say? I am spontaneous and full of energy. Anyone ever experienced this sort of thing?
