How many years have you been in the industry?
my passion for coffee was first ignited with my first barista job back in '94.
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.
the barista craft is something i've been working at for years. it's a constant fun challenge trying to perfect my latte art and come up with new drink recipes.

i started as a home roaster on a little i-roast about 3 years ago, then i graduated to a san franciscan 1 pound roaster. now, having opened my shop, we're roasting on a san franciscan sf-6. roasting is also a source of constant fascination and learning. i also enjoy cupping, and am a certified barista and trainer for SCAA. I love helping other people develop their sensory skills and am obsessed with la nez du cafe!!!
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
anywhere ...especially latin america
About Me:
fluent in spanish, marketing background, enjoy traveling, and learning. finally transitioned from too many years spent working boring office jobs. now i'm back into coffee permanently, and couldn't be happier :)
About My Company:
Espresso Elevado (E2) is an artisan coffee roaster and brew bar with an earth-friendly, organic focus. Two things that set us apart from other local shops is our commitment to an elevated level of quality in product and service, and also, that we select, roast, and blend our own beans fresh in-house.

Our menu is designed to be straight-forward and quality-focused. Our coffee is always fresh and individually prepared.

Costa Rica

Posted on January 13, 2009 at 1:35pm 1 Comment

Two months have passed since my November, 2008 trip to Costa Rica and it is with joy and sadness that I share a small sampling of my many photos. Although I've traveled to other origin lands before, this was the first time I was led to a place - at least in part - by coffee.

For any willing observer, Costa Rica reveals its beauty around every turn - in vibrant color, with exotic sounds, and a sensory overload of scents and flavors. As is said, it's Pura Vida (literally "pure life")… Continue
