Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
barista, coffee enthusiast
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
Harlem, NYC
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 love team work. I love times when it's crazy busy and I am making magic behind the bar with my co-worker and I also love lulls for some serious smack downs. I love learning. I am flexible and I think easily to communicate with. I feel comfortable sharing what I know and what I think. My cafe is pretty busy most of the time. I am a shift lead and really love working with different people and trying to balence where people want to be for a shift.
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Everywhere. A country of origin is seriously over due but financially and time wise right now I think that visiting cafes and roasterys here in the states is more likely. I am doing a Midwest and East coast tour for spring break. I would love to spend some more time in Portland, Seattle and San Fran but anywhere as long as I have time to save for a ticket.
About Me:
Right now I am a full time student at The Evergreen State College taking a year long program on American History and Economics and absolutely love it. I am making a name for myself I think with all of the new people that I am meeting and would love to open a cafe eventually. I think that I would like to actually open a couple different kinds of cafes but I plan on finishing school first and continuing to meet rad people, make and drink coffee and cup as often as possible. I want to continue to expand my vocabulary and experiences. I love working in this industry. I am so moved by passion and can't wait to meet more passionate coffee dorks and professionals.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
the passion, the geeking out, the connections.

Not sure yet, I imagine I can hang out at my friend's cafe at EVP. I still am getting to know about EVP, my friend that I am visiting has been working with them for several years. They roast their own coffee and have some pretty nice… Continue

Madison, WI and New York in March

Posted on January 2, 2008 at 3:06am 4 Comments

I am finally visiting one of my best friends in Madison for Spring Break this March. And because I am so much closer to New York while in Madison I have decided to hop over to New York as well. I would love to visit as many new shops as possible and hopefully start making connections for my big plan of a project for school my junior year, which is two years away. I don't really have a plan for New York other than to eat well, visit shops, make connections and knit.
