Hey there, coffee lovers! My name is Tom and I’m a 30-year-old barista who has been working in the coffee industry since high school. Can you believe it? It’s been quite a journey for me, but let me tell you – I wouldn’t trade this life for anything.

When I first started as a barista, I was just looking for a job to pay some bills. But something about the art of making coffee captivated me from day one. There’s just so much more to it than pouring hot water over the grounds and calling it a day.

Over the years, I’ve learned how to perfectly brew espresso shots with crema so thick you could stand a spoon up in it. I’ve discovered hidden flavor profiles in beans from all over the world that make my taste buds dance. And don’t even get me started on latte art – nothing beats creating intricate designs out of steamed milk.

But what really keeps me going after all these years is the people. There’s something special about being part of someone’s daily routine, whether they’re grabbing their morning cup on their way to work or sitting down for an afternoon pick-me-up with friends. The conversations we have while I’m crafting their perfect beverage are what make this job truly fulfilling.
