Quiz:how do you know you are a Professional Barista?

  1. Can you pour a heart shaped latte?
  2. Can you tell the difference between Kenyan and Sumatran in a blind taste test?
  3. Can you prepare three espressos, three lattes and three specialty custom drinks in under 15 minutes and present them beautifully?
  4. Can you discuss politics, weather and religion while pouring the drinks mentioned in #3?
  5. Why is espresso a multi-phasic beverage?
  6. Can you tell when a customer walks in the door if they need their drink prepared quickly or if they are interested in lingering?
  7. Do you automatically adjust the grind on the espresso grinder when you notice that your extraction time is not correct?
  8. Do you read coffee trade journals?
  9. When you are traveling, is finding a source for good coffee one of your top priorities when arriving in a new city?
  10. Do you know way more about coffee and its preparation than you actually need to know to do your job?

I've had to take myself off "the coff" for awhile due to some ulcerish tendencies (serenity now! serenity now!) so I'm trying to just *read* about coffee as a poor, poor substitute to drinking it. So, I eagerly look forward to your next post! (hint hint)

Hmm, 7 out of 10 ain't bad for being noticably out of practice.

My folks opened a café about a year ago, but I haven't worked there for about 4 months. Too much other stuff is going on at the moment for me to go back to working there, but I'm still notoriously fastidious about my coffee. Friends are either amused or exasperated by my coffee snobbery, but for me, life's too short for bad espresso.
