Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
Austin, TX
How many years have you been in the industry?
4 years-on and off
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 love people. I love laughter. Most of all I love coffee mixed with both of those.
I have been in the coffee business on and off--one shop for 2 years, another 3rd wave for a few months, and another 3rd wave for a few months. I still have a lot to learn--and soak it up with a vengence.
I want to settle down and grow old working in a shop that is awesome....
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
I'm interested in Hawaii and Colorado--they seem to share the same personality that I seem to jive well with. I also would love to learn the coffee culture of Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland.

I'll go anywhere--as long as it is a happy place. NO ANGRY BARISTAS!!!
About Me:
We're all connected in this huge web of life and coffee runs the motor.
I'm a pretty laid back granola of a chick who *TRIES* to ride her bike everywhere, rain or shine.
I feel that coffee shops fulfill their role when they are producing a amazing product that goes deeper than the cup--it supports it's growers, it brings a smiles and giggles, it promotes energy and the shouted cry of "Eureka!"
I want to work with positive people using coffee as an engine bringing culture to customers' cups, eyes, and ears--as long as fun music and beautiful smiles are involved.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
I love the environmental and social connection that the artisan coffee and 3rd wave culture promotes.

Hey hey! Austin, huh? That's good stuff!

No, I do not know them personally (just a few very casual conversations a year or more ago). I do know the owner of Progress Coffee and Owl Tree Roasting in Tulsa. Check them out and I can introduce you guys if it looks cool to you.

Good luck!

Good hearing from you! "When" you get back to OKC, we have a spot for you! Yes, Micah is working the bars now at Cafe Evoke Catering! It's awesome.

Check out www.ArizonaCoffee.com. It is a site kept by one of my friends, Chris. There is an awesome AZ coffee scene!

We'll be in Crested Butte for a 10 or so days starting February 12th - will you still be around?

Hey, hung out with your brother a few times in the past month - cool dude. Hope things are well...

Things here are going well. I was bummed that you left because we are getting busy and need some help!

Next time around I guess (or when we get the Evoke opened in CO!)

Hope things are great. Good luck finding a job. I will keep my ears open. We will be heading to Crested Butte at the end of the month - looking forward to it.

Greg Lefcourt- Ozo Coffee Co, Boulder, CO
Robin Crosby- Coal Creek Coffee, Laramie, WY
Philip Search- Sole Coffee Roasters, Boulder, CO
