Posted on February 22, 2009 at 6:01am 3 Comments

Well, here it is. My first blog on BaristaExchange.

It's been an interesting month for this jobless barista. I quit my barista trainer/ barista job up here in Seattle at Trabant and have had a way tougher time trying to get another job than I initially anticipated. I'm making the assumption that I'm in a pretty awkward place in my life with coffee. I feel as if I'm someone who should be rocking some espresso bar at some cafe, settled in all nice and what not, slingin' spro everyday… Continue

that was really fun! I was glad to have a chance to put some of those coffees next to each other on the same table!! Every time I cup, I learn something. It's wonderful!

Ah Seattle, lucky to live there as a barista. Its really rather poor over here. Im in Aberdeen, Scotland. We have 1 roaster that seems passionless and the nearest place for a good cup is 70miles away. haha.
Down in England or even Edinburgh, Scotland has more of a scene for it.

That blend sounds great. I''m quite new to coffee and going to try out different blends asap.
