What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Anywhere is interesting to me. I may find myself in L.A. For a few months (7+) within the next year and a half. Other than that who knows where my wife and I will end up.
About Me:
I am finishing up my masters degree and am looking to go on to doctorate level studies to become a professor. Coffee is a huge passion of mine and I plan to work as a Barista for most if not all of my life. My wife and I currently live in Cincinnati, Ohio.
About My Company:
Tazza Mia is a small locally owned coffee shop (now small chain of 5 shops) in the Cincinnati area. I work in the Westchester store which roasts for all of the other stores. All small batches of coffee roasted and almost always coffee less than a week or two old at all our stores. Great coffee (green beans come from coffee holding company Inc.) and good food. The owner was a home roaster and Barista for several years before starting it and really knows his stuff.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
I love the taste, diversity of flavor, and asthetic beauty of coffee and coffee beverages.
