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 Intelligentsia coffee and tea in Chicago. We try to set the bar high for what it takes to work in our shops and I would qualify most of our bar certified staff as solid 3rd wavers. I currently have a decent grasp on latte art, solid knowledge of espresso craft and know my fair share about single origin coffees as well. I could not speak for Intelligentsia as far as opening our shops to the exchange program but would be interested in seeing how other shops do things and participating in Jams, guest shifts or what have you
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
short term I am interested in any US city with a solid 3rd wave shop/culture. in the longer term I am inclined to travel to central/south america, Europe and possibly even africa.
I am a 29 year old Barista with some experience in coffee production environments as well. I adhere to a healthy chunk of your standard progressive values such as living green, social responsibility and equality. My interests outside of coffee include biking (commuter) bar tending/mixology and plants.

I was checking out the intelligentsia site, i i fell in love with the jeremy fish shirt and the black cat tamper!
Could you take those for me, and bring to London? I could by the wwebsite, bit it would take forever to come to Brazil
I'll pay you there!
Congrats Michael!! Sorry I missed the "party" out in Cali, but work & 2 teenagers kept me back in Ohio. I was cheering for you all the way...I knew you would do it again. Keep at it and I'm sure you will be walking away with the trophy in London. Take care & best wishes.
