Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
barista trainer, home barista, coffee enthusiast
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
Longmont, CO
How many years have you been in the industry?
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.
I started making my own drinks on a cheap machine in the early 90's. Every coffee shop I visited, I asked questions. Over the years, I've worked as a barista, trained staff, and visited coffee regions around the world. It's a very active hobby for me! And I look for shops that love what they co, communicate that to customers and make drinks at least as good as I make at home!
About Me:
I've worked with the "people skills" part of business helping people "talk" to each other for decades. Now, I'm focusing on inspiring people to live with clarity and purpose in their lives.

Been a Barista, trained managers in milk and espresso preparation, studied Latte Art with Matt at ABC school, visited coffee areas in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Vietnam, Bali, Sumatra, Sulawesi and have mountain biked and trekked through Vietnam coffee country. I have multiple types of coffee makers including Greek, Vietnamese, pour over, Moka pot, press pot, toddy and my Oscar espresso machine. Have sampled close to 100 different espresso blends and know my favorites!
About My Company:
I help people get clear on their priorities in life and then live in alignment with them. I'm a possibility thinker and see connections everywhere. My greatest discovery: "you can not not have an influence". I believe that everywhere I go and everyone I meet, I'm having an influence and I choose the most positive presence I can through being authentic in the moment!
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
Finding a shop that really cares, barista that connect with customers and makes a great drink and a warm inviting enviroment.

Kopi Luwak in Bali

Posted on March 13, 2009 at 3:37pm 3 Comments

I was recently in Bali. The first part of my trip was packed with travel. First, to familiarize myself a bit with Southern Bali and then to visit the temples of Prabanan and Borobudur near Yogyakarta on Java.

While visiting a friend in Sanur, she told me that the best coffee around was at Kopi Bali. We went there for morning coffee and it was excellent. I didn't have my camera so went back later in the afternoon to take some photo's. The coffee… Continue

Yes saw the pics. I spent a year in Yogya(karta) back in 1998/99 learning Bahasa Indonesia. It was where my Indonesian coffee adventures started and where my wifes family lives. Its a city that actually grows on you- I love it there. I spend a lot of time in Bali as well. Its kind of nice being so close to such a special place. For sure I would love to drop in and say hi as well. I had a year in CO. around 10 years before coming to Indonesia! Was up in Summit County, all skiing no coffee back then!

Hi Larry,

Since you are an ABC student you can receive a substantial discount on an Oscar home machine. They are excellent.
