Thanks for the advice, I'll look into it. I glanced your profile and thought you worked at BS, but I guess not anymore? So where do you call home?

Yeah. I work for the Purple Onion's sister store Espresso Expose as a barista and trainer. Awesome place to work, and great people, but I really feel like I've hit a ceiling there and it's kind of been getting me down lately. I basically taught myself everything that I know about coffee It just seems like no one really has the passion for making quality espresso on a consistent basis there.
Do you know of anywhere around here that does advanced training of any sort?

Thanks for being a friend.
I've heard some amazing things about your shop, so I suppose I'll have to stop in sometime.

Yep, I worked Wednesday, and stuck around a little after. You probably saw me. I was in Black Sheep today for the first time. I had a good time there. I met Pete, and he poured us (me, and a few of my coworkers from CR) some great coffee. I moved to the Cities a few months back, and am now finally making it around to the shops I've wanted to check out. Next time your in Common Roots, say hello.

Glad to see we are friends, it is going to be bittersweet when you leave for Gimme. Best of luck.
