ink anyone?

I give this guy props for showing off commitment to the craft.

I sent my wife the link... and got the following back, "don't even think about it". If you have some ink that shows off your dedication to the career you are in post the links in the comments.

My Little Barista

Based on a conversation the other day with my little girl I am now in search of a toy espresso machine. She was playing in her new kitchen and I was being served a slice of cake. I asked if I could have a cup of coffee, she informed me that she did not have an espresso machine so I was getting tea. Fair enough... that means that daddy needs to get her a espresso machine for practicing. She all ready crawls up on the counter when I am making drinks at home. She know the process: grind, dose, tamp, polish, lock it in, pull the shots, knock it out. That is my little barista.

Heather's USBC Blend

Shortly before the winner was announced at the World Barista Championship I had placed and order for a pound of Heather's blend that she used to win the USBC. If I was smart I should have waited a bit and ordered the blend she used at the WBC. But now to the point, it arrived today and as any good coffee geek I quickly ripped open the FedEx package and made sure the espresso machine was on and warmed up. Upon opening the bag I was met with a very pleasant aroma that just made the taste buds start watering. I measured out enough for a double espresso and tossed it in the grinder, pre-warmed my espresso cup, dosed, tamped and pulled a great double. The creama was amazing and the bouquet was great as I waited for the shot to pull. The shot has a nice citrus note and a very elegant berry note. Oh this is going to be a good pound of beans... I will have to try it in a cappuccino to see how it works with milk, which I am sure will be great as well.
