Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
Lincoln, UK
How many years have you been in the industry?
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 worked for one year as a barista, before being promoted to Head Barista at Coffee Aroma. And I have been in that position for 3 months. In that time I have made huge differences in the quality of the coffee, eaten a lot of my own words, made many modifications, many which have been destroyed and trained new staff.
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Anywhere there's good coffee and great people.
About Me:
I am twenty, and aside from my passion for coffee, I love wine, dislike Lincoln, and wear glasses. I have been involved in Lincoln only for the time I have been involved with Coffee Aroma, I have grown a lot within coffee in the last year, alongside my shop, and have made many good friends along the way. Whilst I am primarily a barista, I am also involved in training, home roasting, machine restoration and modification, and would love to learn more.

At home, I own a La Spaziale New EK 2 group, a La Spaziale MXP, an I-roast 2 and a Rancilio MD40.
About My Company:
Coffee Aroma is an independent coffee shop in Lincoln, UK, we have been open for approximately 2 years, and since that time we've grown from serving terribly roasted fairtrade, to serving our own blend from Steve at Hasbean, and also a guest Cup of excellence coffee.

We try to do what we feel right for speciality coffee in Lincoln, teach people about coffee, and above all, have fun, try to innovate, and drink coffee.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
The UK community, and the Brazilian Santa Terezhina CofE

Drinks, drinks and more drinks

Posted on April 4, 2008 at 11:05am 2 Comments

At the minute, my cogs are turning at a ferocious speed. And whilst it's normally concentrating on the coffee, at the minute, it's concentrating with what I put in the coffee, both to create new, and inventive drinks at work, but also to start developing a signature drink for when I try and compete.

One drink, we poured at work yesterday was a bizarre one. We tried it with a couple of different soda's, but the completed drink consisted of filling an 8oz tumbler with ice. Half filling… Continue
