Becoming a Coffee Snob

Haha not really though…but since I do have a bit of knowledge of coffee making and what makes a good cappuccino, then probably I’ll be a bit more judgemental, but I’ll still drink the coffee. Previously, I had mentioned before that I was taking a barista course. I did it and it was absolutely fun and experience. Majority of the class was practical, that’s a good way to teach people. It was more enjoyable since I did it with a friend and her sister. I could say that we made a lot of mess in our area, keeping spilling coffee when we trying to bring it to the middle table and stretching the milk till it over flows to the floor. We did clean after ourselves. During the progress, we (the class) did become more accustomed on making coffees, that’s what the teacher said. The last lesson was taking orders from the whiteboard. The teacher listed 5 coffees and make what we have learnt. Lucky for the 3 of us we worked as a team. Taking turns on making the espresso, foaming the milk and pouring to make the correct coffee.
The end of the day, we got our certificate of completion, clothing smelled like coffee and hungry. The experience was fun. I also booked myself in to do a coffee art course. So, I cannot wait for it.

Taking Action towards Coffee

I have been job hunting for a while now. Not much successful, but I’m still trying. Maybe, I’m applying for the wrong places (retail) with my dull personality. I do give a more duller personality and speech compared to everyone else in the room. Yeah, majority of them were group interviews. It has pro and cons about it but mostly, you’re competing people in the room and you can tell, well from what I seen trying to impress the managers. For me, no matter what, I can’t bring myself to bring that ‘bubbly’ and ‘outgoing’ personality, specially on the first impression. Well from what my friend said; Fake it till you make it (Again, can’t bring myself to do that).

So, I thought I could just learn another skill that might open more doors for me and probably will give me another upper chance in landing a position. The result was…doing a barista course. Yeah, I think it would be fun to do and a cool skill to have. Plus, I like drinking coffee, it would be interesting to learn more about. Additionally, it’s going to be more fun since I’m doing along with a friend and her sister.
