I wanted to dedicate my first post to coffee.
From being a curious kid to an actual junior barista and now a barista (at least I think I am). Coffee is more than just a caffeinated drink, it has its story and it has different hidden meaning behind.
Fortunate enough, my first job is to work in a specialty coffee shop. They let me understand you don’t need to be a hipster to be a barista, ’cause coffee drinkers will look up to you as long as you make a good cup of coffee. They roast their own filter coffees and if you have any question about your drinks, they will tell you all about it. Also! One thing you have to know if you’re a coffee lover, a good cup of coffee is not all on the barista!! Coffee can be easily affected from its growing environment that combine soil condition, rainfall and many more.
Barista only do 30% of your coffee… I believe :X

A small roastery as such focuses on origin coffees offering different brewing method that helps to bring out the best condition of a type of beans. If such small company can deliver this idea of specialty coffee to the public so easily, in the near future a lot more people will appreciate the difference origin coffees have to offer.
