"You make the best Mochas. You specifically."
"Thank you so much for suggesting a cortado. I knew I could trust you to know what I would like. It was divine!"
I was at the TED Conference at the Long Beach Convention Center, California. A group of attendees (ticket price was around ten thousand for a three day event), approached me on the final day and stated that they voted me the best barista at the show. It was a great feeling.
Just being around that crowd of stars gave me the energy and passion to become a better latte artist.
