Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
barista, manager, barista trainer, home barista, coffee enthusiast, industry professional, consultant
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
Chicago, IL USA
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?
About Me:
Their once was a Barista who was drowning in debt
She tried and tried her best I bet

Her drinks were great and her smile would never waver
But the tips alone could not sustain her

Years went buy in this industry
But sometimes you need more to live than just coffee

Every check was gone before it came
She couldn't barely feed her dog and that was lame

One day another opportunity arose
And no, it was not training dingos

She took the job with a heavy heart
As she could no longer practice latte art

On a shelf her tamper sits pristine, cold and lonely
Bored in this office she's becoming cynical and bitchy

Going to work was no longer a joy
"Why don't you get a car? Your bike is just a toy"

But alas this story is not through
This is getting long, should I have written a haiku?

Very soon her debts will be paid
And she can go back from which she strayed

About My Company:
I'm the head barista/general manager/quality control over at The Wormhole Coffee here in Chicago!
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
