Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
coffee enthusiast
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
Chicago, IL USA
How many years have you been in the industry?
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.
I pull a pretty good shot of 'spro, if I do say so myself... others say so too. My latte art ain't bad. No matter what I do, I always manage to overstretch milk. I am anal-retentive/OCD about machine cleanliness to the point of getting teased about it at every barista gig I've ever had. I'm a bit out of practice of late, but I managed not to completely embarrass myself at the last TNT
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Toronto, Portland, Austin, Brooklyn, Montreal, London, Glasgow, Prague
About Me:
I love scotch almost as much as I love espresso. Other passions include reading, music, yoga and urban cycling. Ask me about my last band... on second thought, don't.

I just moved from DC to Chicago and I'm looking for a (part-time) barista gig because coffee people are the best people around and food service jobs are the best way to meet interesting people in a new city. I also teach yoga, so if anybody knows any studios or health clubs looking to hire, do let me know!
About My Company:
I used to work at Open City (in Woodley Park, DC), li'l sister to Tryst (in Adams-Morgan, DC): restaurant/bar/coffee shop/lounge/dessert topping/floor wax
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
the demon bean itself, followed very closely by the communities it inspires

paper cup

upside down garlic

I had one of the best breakfasts of my life at Open City.

Best to you, Bob, hope to see you soon,

A low blow!
I've got plenty of work to do tomorrow.
Most of it involves making pancakes and eating popsicles in my pajamas at home. It's a hard job, but someone's got to do it.

Although. Wait. YOU'RE hanging out on bX on a friday night and you're legally old enough to go out and drink.
