Find Your Inner Barista

Coffee, anyone?




For most of us, it's the first thing we crave when we wake in the morning. COFFEE is a national obsession and the options available are exploding by the minute. A month ago National Coffee a Day was celebrated. When did that happen? Or, was I just asleep for most of it. No doubt, this is my cue to turn up the caffeine a tad bit more. 


Sitting in a cafe sipping coffee is probably one of the most socially accepted behaviours in today's world. It's one of life's zen moments? But drinking coffee in a cafe isn't just a solitary experience. Blind dates are most often preferable over java. Coffee had become yet another snob factor.


And that snob factor isn't just limited to cafes. Serving coffee at home has become another obsession. Affianadoes go to great lengths to ensure perfection from the picking the right beans to deciding on the right brand of expresso machine. For those who have not yet perfected the art of the perfect pour, there's a lot offices out there you can Google. Or, you could grab the best book from the bookstore and place it right beside your Nespresso Machine, so it can be a talking point when your friends are over.
