2-3 months? In awhile to save for the plane ticket. 30-35 hours working behind the bar in exchange for an internship. Maybe a little help with housing at least initially?

David, your website is beautifully put together. I'm very interested in a visit to your shop to work for a time. I would be thrilled to gain the experience and knowledge from you and your staff. Not to mention the opportunity to travel and be surrounded by a new culture. Everything about it sounds wonderful! How long would you want a barista for? Any ideas on lodging?
