The main reason why I wanted to work at coffee shop was well thankfully not for the pay. I wanted to learn as much as I could about about coffee. To my fortunate luck, a new coffee shop had just opened around the corner of where I lived in Texas.
Around day five of training I pretty much understood the dynamic. Altough, at times my coworker backs me up whenever I screw up up.
A month in into the job and my coworker, and for the major part every recurring customer, apparently think that my tacos are – my trick, warming the tortilla with a bit of bacon & oil leftover grease – soon enough we had plenty of regulars.
Needless to say it was a very fast paced environment and a great learning experience.

- First sink the tip of the steamer all the way down, leave it there until the milk starts to get a bit heavy.
- Raise the tip of the steamer to about 1/4 of the surface where it’s still steaming the milk but it’s not throwing steam at the end of the cup
- Steam until the bottom of the milk cup is hot, use your pinky finger to measure.
