Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
barista, barista trainer
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
Phoebus, Virginia. 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 am the lead Barista/trainer for a small coffee shop in Phoebus Virginia, near Norfolk. I have a knack for customer interaction. I make every customer feel special. I call it the Cheers syndrome. You know "a place where everybody knows your name" :-)
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Well being a Barista is not my full time bread winning job. So anywhere that I can with little impact to the 9-5. Central east coast U.S., and would love to work a bit in Mainland Italy, having lived in Sicily already.
About Me:
I have a deep passion for providing a good tasting, good feeling coffee experience to my customers. I like them knowing that I made that drink just for them. I am retired from the U.S. Air Force after 23 years service. I have visited most countries of the northern hemisphere, and a few south, but none in South America. My other passion is racing Sailboats! Our coffee shop is 1000ft or so from the Chesapeake Bay!
About My Company:
Anne, the owner and baker extraordinare created her shop because she couldn't find a good cup of coffee in the area. We opened October 2007. We also have a full sandwich menu and baked fresh daily scones, muffins and such. This is the second coffee shop I have been involved with. Both have had the feel of being the social center of town. We are Brunch central on Sunday!

News, News, News!

We were mentioned in April issue of Good Housekeeping Magazine. WooHoo!

There are lots of hotels in the area for staying, but we have a guest bedroom just for people just like you. (Well, and the in-laws occasionally.) I do have to warn you, though, I do have a Wii, and it is addictive! Just let me know, we'd love to have you at the jam!

Well, I know that the word "macchiato" means "marked with", or "flecked with", or "stained with" in Italian.
Therefore Espresso Macchiato should translate to espresso marked with something like milk....and by default we always use warm milk to mark the coffee. You can be correct with a dollop or a free pour of steamed milk, in my opinion, but I personally enjoy the free-pour better.
Incidentally, Starbucks is also correct. They use the macchiato term in reverse, if you will...a glass of steamed milk with a mark of coffee and also a mark of caramel when it comes to that drink they are so famous for.
Cheers on a Macchiato, buddy!

I don't know him, but I'm sure someone in my family does. Boatner isn't really a common name, you know?
