Home Barista vs. Barista

If we want to prepare and enjoy tasty coffee at home, it is important to keep in mind that every little detail during the brewing process matters.

Always remember you can prepare better coffee at home than in coffee shops, the professional Baristas!

Reasons why:

  1. One the most difference is your passion. I can’t write baristas in coffee shops, they don’t have “Fire in heart”. But it is different to prepare coffee for you or somebody close to you.
  2. You have more time to play with it.
  3. You have space for improving; also, if it is not working you have a second chance. You are not under pressure, so you have more time to learn.
  4. You create your own rules, you don’t follow the rules set by the managers or the head Barista of the coffee shop.
  5. Your skills can help a lot to improve your open mind and strong motivation because you are preparing coffee for yourself.
  6. You alone know how you like your coffee and if you have some skills you can focus on it.
