Love Letter to my ex-cafe.

I've missed you. I've missed my Linea, my tamper that got destroyed by that Liberace barista with all the rings. I've missed making those maccs, too. I've missed Ted throwing hot quakers at me.

It was really great to see you again, Kean Coffee. I broke up with you more than three months ago- and i'm so glad we're still good friends. I hope you find everything you need (especially some decent Roburs; if anyone deserves them in the… Continue

Seattle update

Posted on September 18, 2008 at 11:30am 2 Comments

The last thing i did in Southern California was beat Heather Perry in the Ultimate Barista Challenge in Los Angeles. I feel pretty good about doing that. Somebody had to..

so, i made it up to the NW for good (for now, at least). After spending nearly a month on the road, i'm still adjusting to not living out of a bag, a Eurovan, etc. My friend Kris, along with several other characters, had a great time traveling from Orange County to Seattle and back-- including lava tubes, Oregon… Continue

I've discovered cups

Posted on July 27, 2008 at 2:18am 3 Comments

I've never been much of a cup/saucer/spoon/napkin enthusiast. I have seen beautifully unique, rare demitasse and thought, "ooh, cool," but have never been moved to say anything. But tonight- tonight i saw something that changed all that.

Seattle, WA
How many years have you been in the industry?

Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
From my days at Kean: "i work my ass off every am. I almost never miss a cupping. I buy rounds for the house and i'll learn from anybody." Martin and Karen Diedrich have been wonderful mentors to me. They will always feel like family in a way. And yeah, according to me, the coffee of Kean is to die for. For real. I miss the people- I miss the beans.

But i just moved to Seattle to catch up with my folks. I'm the new kid on the bar at Herkimer. Which is awesome.
More later.
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
i love my city; but i still want to go everywhere- provided i have the resources to get out and learn there (guides, friends, etc). I still travel in my own town.
About Me:
i love life. There's a lot to learn.

Nah, I couldn't make it to WRBC. My kid held me as her precious little hostage. Baca told me all about it yesterday. Sounded like a sophisticated gig. How's tricks, sister?
