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.
French Quarter Style Coffee House - different fare than traditional midwest coffee houses. Baristas are well-trained but could use improvement. I can do some latte art but would like to improve. Drinks are consistent. Might be good to do exchange with owner to trade procedure, business, advertising, entertainment, etc. ideas.
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Midwest, to start...Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, maybe Wisconsin and/or Ohio
Sold lumber wholesale for 12 years...couldn't do Corporate America anymore...next logical step was coffee, right? Love New Orleans, so brought a little here to South Bend, IN.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
