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 work for Topeca Coffee in Tulsa Oklahoma. They have made quite a name for themselves as a shop/roastery/company in the last few years. I started working for them in January of 2011. I am being trained by several of their Barista's and Roasters (most of them SCAA certified) and am learning fast and loving the business.
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
I was born and raised in Tulsa but I love to travel and I love new places. I became interested in specialty coffee around 3 years ago when I became close friends with 4 Barista's in a short period of time. They taught me a lot but it wasn't until January of 2011 that I actually got to start getting my hands dirty myself. I am excited to learn all I can.
