Hi, I’m Sam

Coffee has always been a huge part of my life, so I started an amazing website – greatcoffeebreak.com – to showcase my love for coffee and comfort foods. I’m sharing recipes, tips and tricks to make the perfect cafe treats for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. It’s my way of giving back to the coffee community and I’m so excited to share my passion with others!

I’m also passionate about sustainability and I’m incorporating that into my website by offering tips on how to reduce your coffee waste. From composting grounds to using reusable cups, I’m dedicated to helping make the world a better place, one cup of coffee at a time. I’m also working with local coffee roasters to ensure that the beans I’m using are ethically and sustainably sourced. I’m so proud to be making a positive impact on the environment, and I’m looking forward to continuing to help make the world a better place.

What Makes Me a Good Barista

I never imagined myself as a barista until I visited my uncle and witnessed him roasting coffee beans. The warmth and fragrance of the freshly-roasted beans were so tantalizing that it made me curious about the art of coffee making. I started to explore the intricacies of coffee preparation and delved into the science and technique behind it. My curiosity and enthusiasm enabled me to learn the different coffee brewing methods quickly and gave me a better understanding of the craft.

Becoming a barista is not just about knowing the right technique. It is also about the experience and emotion that the barista can bring to the customer. To make a good barista requires patience, empathy, and a genuine love of coffee. I have learned that, to be a good barista, I need to be passionate about coffee, be patient and understanding with customers, and be willing to learn new things. All these qualities will help me serve the best cup of coffee to my customers and make them feel welcome in my shop.
