Barista Looking for 2 months of work in Chicago this summer

DFW (Dallas/Ft. Worth) Jam Time.. the Planning Stages

There has been some talk of planning a DFW Jam on the tx-coffee.com forums. It seems there is enough interest to actually get something going.

Dallas is WAY past due, and if you'll be in the area sometime around early July, you might want to join in on the discussions.

If you won't be, but are interested in giving suggestions, opinions, or just want to see what's going on, you can get in on it too.…

No Man Can Serve Two (or Three) Masters

Time and time again, when I talk to people about coffee business strategy it seems the top priority is speed. "I want the customer to be able to be in and out in 90 seconds or less," and the like seem to have somehow become the goal to strive for in regards to customer service.

Fine. Good. Quick service is hard to look down on, but is that all there is to it? Of course not!

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that speed isn't a noble practice. I'm saying that it… Continue

Late to the Party: Starbucks Pikes Place Roast - Thoughts

Okay, so I like the fact that their stores have taken on a new "Coffee-centric" appearance. I like the fact that the big bags of this blend have a roast date. The signature on the bag is for God knows what, and it doesn't do a thing for me.

All of the huge bags I saw of this stuff (is it just me, or does their 5lb. bag look 1/3 larger than most others?) had a roast date of April 11th. Today is the 23rd, so the coffee should be reasonably… Continue

Swimming in Coffee (syndicated)

Originally taken from www.coffeeaspirations.blogspot.com

Aaron Blanco asked me to do some testing for a brand new espresso blend. This blend is based on an interesting philosophy of espresso blending that Aaron has been thinking about lately. Creating a blend of two coffees to create an experience that equals more than the sum of its parts. This is the first attempt at a realistic execution of this concept, and only the second "production" (as in, regularly created) blend in… Continue

I have too many blogs

So this is most likely my last blog post here.

The rest can be seen at:




I'd love to keep another, but I fear I'll just end up neglecting one of the three if I try to keep tabs on too many things.

Who knows, maybe I'll blog here on occasion.

Love for Coffee.

The Industry, the Community, the People, the Customers; Everything.

It keeps me motivated, and I feel fortunate to be in a business that I am in love with.

Anyone else?

Who else feels the love! :o)
