THIS WEEK's HIGHLIGHT: the three-time national barista champion, duh?! Intelligentsia sold to Pete's Coffee, Ben's perspective on specialty coffee and its growth
This week is quite the treat! To be honest, I look forward to each successive coffee friend every week; and it's because it’s completely unpredictable! There were a few off-air nominations, so Ben has Josh to thank for his lovely nomination (thumbs up!).
Ben has a passion for giving baristas a career in coffee that can flourish and this comes through in the interview. Hope you are captivated by his sig drink description, I know I am.
It gives me great pleasure to have the chance to chat with Ben! His coffee career has long been in the making. Ben and Jeremy are some of my earliest coffee friends, and so that makes THIS week's #coffeefriends, and Monogram kind of awesome!
I’m going to apologise once and for all. There is no way I can keep these to less than 5-minutes, so I should just stop lying to you.
Lesson learned this week:
ISO 22000 is not your quality friend, check all settings before you record. Always be on your toes. Did you enjoy the video? Shout it out RT and comment below. I appreciate any words from you!
