Ever wonder what we here at Barista Life each week? Well, most days we serve a lot of coffee (we are baristas, after all). But because our shop doesn't open till 1 pm, we spend most of our mornings at, you guessed it, other coffee shops. So, why do we do this?? To spread the word, dude. We want every barista in Poland to have a chance to get to join the community. We spend our mornings at other shops talking with baristas (just like us) who are itching to learn more or just hang out. Well, do we have the place for you! Barista Life is about connecting baristas with each other to share passion, knowledge, and life together. If you are a Polish barista, or just a person who likes coffee, you can join our discussions and hear about events on our website: here.

Glen Gregory of Warsaw's You Bean and Java Coffee Company is a roaster/speaker/cupping master extraordinaire! Glen dazzled us with a slide show presentation that provided a detailed explanation of the Cup of Excellence program and its impact on the coffee industry in Rwanda. The guys at CoE -lead by the impossibly dedicated

We are anticipating a fabulous Black Coffee Night tomorrow night! Welcome all baristas and lovers of coffee to our Poznan, Poland shop Friday night Jan 14ht at 7pm at Sweet Surrender Poznan. We have the incredible Glen Gregory, "Polmerican" roastmaster extraordinaire! He is bringing coffee, grinder and demo roaster, oh my! It will be the most exciting thing since the Hario pour-over cone (we hope). Barista Life is graciously sponsoring the event, and we are happy to have them (yeah, ok, I'm a member too :) Aaron and I have been to coffeeshops all over Poznan chatting it up about this event. Check out this blog for a tell-all re-cap this weekend. Be there, or be...somewhere else.
