Never thought I would make coffee my career but guess what here I am 24 years later Maybe it is the scandinavian heratige... I started drinking coffee at age 9 in 1972!!!. my mom made cafe aulait using a moka pot and a small enameled pitcher for the milk heated on the stove . this is where my love began... I love teaching and creating. although my job encompasses a wide variety of responsibilities, teaching Baristas and sharing my experiance and knowledge is where my heart is. I love that all these years later I continue to learn new and exciting things.

Hey Heidi,
Thanks for adding Coffee Kids! Check out http://www.flickr.com/coffeekids to see our partners at work. How did you hear about us? And as Mike below mentioned, if you're ever in AZ you just have to pop over one state to be in New Mexico and visit us.
