Coffee School for those interested in opening own coffee shop

Are you interested in opening your own coffee shop? If you have no idea on how and where to start, perhaps you may attend a coffee school to learn all about it. The coffee school that you can consider attending is The American Barista & Coffee School.

    Does it necessary to go for a coffee school to start and run a small coffee shop? Well, in my opinion if you can spare the time, effort and investment, why not? Honestly you can learn all the necessary skills and methods from anybody who has experience in opening up a coffee shop. That’s not a difficult thing to achieve. The most important part is gaining the connection and continues supports from every party throughout your coffee serving career. There are lots of benefits in attending The American Barista & Coffee School which you can find listed in the website. I believe it’s very difficult or impossible if you’re planning to open a coffee shop just by yourself. Most coffee shops are franchised which makes them very hard to compete. It’s like taking up a platoon of army alone. In order to compete with these coffee giants and survive, you’ll need all the help that you can get. That means other than learning all the skills, formulas and methods from the school. You need to setup your own connection. Especially if you want to start your own unique style of coffee shop, you need all the help you can get from the school, schoolmates or maybe people who has the same dream which opens up same style of coffee shop just like you.

Syphon Coffee Site Seeing

Before having a taste of Syphon coffee, watching the preparation process is an enjoyment. It's like having coffee with your eyes. At the beginning we enjoy watching the cup of coffee making in process. We see the coffee. During the process of preparing the cup of coffee using Syphon method, we can smell the coffee right after the coffee powder is pour into the hot water. As we prepare ourselves for the taste of the cup of coffee, our coffee addiction and desire are well stir up by the smell of the coffee and interesting preparation. I suppose the taste of Syphon coffee will taste as good as we think... eventually.

Beer 101 Class Education

Beer is one of my favorite drinks other than coffee. Beer is for fun, coffee is for work. Both drinks have their own purpose and needs. Although I learn to drink beer during my university life but I did not take any course about beer. I honestly think that university should include beer as a course in the study. We should treat beer the same like sex education. Having too much beer or drinking beer the wrong way can be dangerous. It’s all about learning the necessary knowledge to face the world that fills with beer. This website Beer 101 might not be what we expected but still we can learn something about Beer.

Coffee and the Cup

It’s a nice lovely cup, but what matters most is the coffee. I prefer to have a good delicious coffee with a great smell in a simple pain white coffee cup. I suppose I just cannot take it when the cup looks good but the coffee taste bad. Of cause it will be best to have a nice brew coffee in a nice looking cup. If I cannot have both, I’ll go for the taste of coffee instead of the looks of the cup.
