I really need to catch up

Ok...So, what's going on in the barista exchange world. It's been a long since I last posted/explored/commented about anything on here.

So what have I been up to you ask? I have moved training centers to the great little place called Area 15 in Charlotte. Google's pretty awesome. I moved here in February and had the build out completed by March. I have been exploring pour over only bars, and digging deeper into no tamping/zero distribution espresso shots (some have…

need a shot in the arm!

sometimes the extended hours (12, 13, 14 or more!) gets to me when i'm working in the height of the season...

Held off as long as I could but yesterday had to bite the bullet and place a greens order. Those 1382LB greens cost $400.78 more than they would have last order 1 month 12 days ago! Even worse, it'll be more like $489 more after roasting weight loss, or up over 35cents per pound in 6 weeks. But whachagonnado?

Barista-Boy on tour

Hi, I'm a Barista from the UK with a few months off and away from pulling shots. So I've decided to spend my hard earned cash on seeing how other people do it.
I'm heading to the Pacific North West for 3 months. Already got a list of coffee shops I"m gonna visit, but anyone out there who'd welcome a young travelling Barista and be up for giving advice would be great. I'm starting my trip mid October and have nothing but time and a thirst for espresso (knowledge).

each time you should get different flavors.. apparently... i didnt get anything... :(

different people get different notes from the same cup of coffee.

why does every espresso shot taste sour to me, even a good… Continue
