I have over 5 years of experience as a barista and during that time I have grown to love coffee but (slightly) hate mainstream coffee shops!

Don’t get me wrong, there are some really great independent coffee shops out there that offer proper fresh coffee. It’s just the buy-cheap-sell-big kind of coffee shops that I don’t like. They seem to care too much about upselling, speedy service and making as many sales as they can. There are a few other factors that add to my irritation – but that’s a story for another day.

During my time working as a barista, I often thought about how I could replicate the barista-style drinks at home but make them much cheaper and better quality. Plus, at home, everything can be tailored to your own taste. So, you don’t have to feel awkward about ordering a ‘soya, one-shot, extra-hot, no-froth latte’ anymore!

Not only am I a huge coffee fan but I also love to write, I went to university and studied journalism. So, putting my knowledge on the internet and sharing my passion for coffee comes quite easily to me.

As an ex-barista, I never thought I would be spending this much of my post-coffee-shop life writing so much about coffee. Yet, here I am, and I am actually having a blast but maybe that’s because I’m drinking more coffee than before as well?
