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.
You'd experience a high paced cafe, full of energy and fun, lots of chit chatting with customers as they run off to work, some sit down visitors (we have 50 seats) and lots of creativity. Our customers love to see the heats in the milk or the creative toppings we add to their drink to make it special. Every to go drink leaves with a heart on top!
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Would love to travel all over! There is so much out there that I've never seen.
Happily married for 7+ years, 2 kids, one is almost 12 and the baby just turned 2. Love to travel, go out to eat, drink coffee (go figure!), play games with friends, watch movies, go to the beach, and sometimes I just love to be at home! Love to watch the kids grow (sometimes its right before my eyes!)
About My Company:
We have two coffee businesses. One company is called Cafe Technologies. (www.cafetechnologies.com) where we help people all over the U.S. open coffee shops. The other business is our retail cafe called Brewed Awakening...both businesses keep me busy and are so much fun, I love getting to know so many people and putting that special heart or latte art on every drink!!!
At Cafe Technologies we provide specialty espresso and coffee brewing equipment, start up accessories, consulting and training. Our training packages are offered in two ways...
#1 is really popular for folks who are planning on getting into the coffee industry but they aren't quite sure its for them (not everyone is as coffee crazy as we are!!!) For this customer we offer a 3 day training/educational program where the last day of training you actually get to work in my cafe for a day! It gets you behind the counter and serving drinks and doing things a business owner would do (ordering, receiving goods etc).
#2 is great for someone who is about to open. We fly out to you, assist you with the last minute details of opening, train your entire staff, operate on a soft opening schedule and stay throughout opening day. Its great because you have us there when you need us the most. And after its all said and done we are just a phone call away.
Our on site training is done at our retail location called Brewed Awakening. Its a great community cafe where we offer specialty espresso based drinks, smoothies, a full breakfast menu including omelets and scrambles French toast etc as well as home made pastries, panini sandwiches and related lunch items.
