What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
In no other industry is the whole world so affected by the sweat and care taken at every stage in the process to produce such a temporal, yet timeless commodity. Coffee beans can only be used once, yet there affect is to tranport the drinker into the history of revolutions, martyrdom, and late nights :) There is no substitute for a truly delicious brew, and yet all of its potential can be dashed by one mistake made along the long road to the cup.
Thanks so much! I will most certainly have to check that out! I hoarded the blue binder the first week I was there, so thanks for the great info. I forgot there were sites listed on that so I will probably check some of that out!
awe man! Well, it doesn't hurt to try! Out of curiosity, do you have anything else you may be willing to lend me that is a great resource? I have never done much reading up on coffee and so I would love to soak up what I can!
Hey Daniel! I was reading up on some older threads and someone had suggested you pick up a copy of the Professional Barista Handbook. I was curious to know if you did pick it up and if so if I might be able to borrow it sometime? Otherwise I was planning on ordering it!
