I'm a salary based manager at the shop I run. We've been open since February of this year. I was informed a week ago that my salary is based on a 60 hour work week.

I could not help but laugh as I noticed a line up of flavored syrups just behind her. So adding artificial flavors is improving the flavor in the cup?! Of course…Continue

I run an espresso bar. No drip. No single serve pour-over. We do serve S.O. french press that we brew up as needed in 1.5 litre pots. This position is not to dis pour-over styles or say they're wrong rather it's to say that our shop serves espresso first and foremost.
Convince me that I'm wrong. Convince me that espresso bars should deviate from their core (the core that has paid the bills for the past however-many-years) and delve into something new and time-consuming...And…Continue
