Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
barista, barista trainer
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
Aldo Coffee, Pittsburgh, PA
How many years have you been in the industry?
3.5 years
If you are a barista or shop, are you interested in a barista exchange with another coffee shop/barista?
Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
My favorite aspect of coffe shop life is the people you meet and work with. Along with that, I enjoy coffee, both drinking and preparing, cupping and tasting and passing along the skills I have been fortunate enough to acquire through trainings and competitions. I have also worked in a cafe in Spain which lends well to the cross cultural aspect of "the exchange." (though I must add I am a bit more than rusty on the spanish."
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Oh, anywhere really.
About Me:
I love traveling, though I have been trying out the adult life more these days, which means not taking off every season to go skipping around the world. Who can afford that forever anyway? I've just started, this last year, to truly enjoy the "wonders of Pittsburgh" and see its unrealized potential. Its becoming home here.
About My Company:
I haven't held a job this long in all my life. That means that its a great place to work.

Hey Belle! Just wondering if Frank is feeling better? Jeremy and I were thinking about him and are also so excited that your new job/venture is doing so well.

I will be in Quebec City and Montreal on the 26 of December, as to the best coffee shops - well I know how to get to them but it's been three years since I was there last so I could not tell you by name. We will be going on to Toronto until the first of Jan. Have a good time in Quebec. - Steve

Wow Belle! That is really exiting for you. I hope you're loving the whole project, and, wrapping your mind around it. My new store (not mine) is slated to open in January and my thoughts are torn between grinders, dishwashers, scones and staff. I don't really know which way to turn. What sort of budget do you have, I wonder, and what product line will you offer? I'm curious, for sure.

We are looking forward to Pittsburgh. More than compete, I'm really eager to spend some time with like minded folk. You all are and inspiration.

Keep up the tremendous work and I'll make sure to pick your brain from time to time, and, ask to borrow your gram scale.
