Another Dream Job Fulfilled: Barista

22 Feb

I’ve always wanted to be a Barista 🙂  First of all, I love coffee, the smell and taste of a good cup.  Secondly, it’s also a way for me to “kidnap” my husband or friends for about an hour or so to just catch up.  I’ve had some of the best conversations over a cup of coffee.

Our very own Saeco coffee machine! (Well, it's on loan...)

When I am not busy with makeup gigs or mommy duties, I am usually at my office. hehe Belle & Cat Nail and Wax Studio has become a second home to me and I am here almost everyday.  It’s always nice seeing our regular clients and meeting new ones 🙂 When I am craving for a cup of coffee, I would walk to either Blenz or Starbucks.  But not anymore… 🙂

Coffee in minutes! 🙂

Recently, I met with Jason, the brother of a good friend of mine, Tessa 🙂 I recently did her makeup for her wedding.  hehe Anyway, going back to the coffee.  Jason is from this company called Best Brew Coffee Solutions, Inc.  They provide “coffee solutions” for your office or shop or salon! 🙂 For me, coffee is the solution to everything! And yoga.  Jason provided us with everything that we needed to be able to give our clients a great cup of coffee while getting their nails done 🙂  You don’t get that in Starbucks! haha!

Love the smell of these local coffee beans. They're called Rocky Mountain Cafe Organic Mountain Blend Coffee.

Okay, so this is where my Barista skills come in.  First I choose the coffee that I am making 🙂 Made this cup for my friend, Angela, after she got her eyelashes permed.  She wanted a latte.  For a cup of latte, I just need a shot of espresso.

So below is the cup with a shot of espresso.

I then prepare the milk.  I place the milk in another cup.

I place the tube in the cup with the milk and with just one press of a button, there is my latte!

Since my friend, Angela, was watching me show off my Barista skills, I got too excited and pressed the button a second too late. Haha! OOOOPS…. too much milk! Sorry!!! 🙂 FAIL.

Angela's Latte 🙂 Almost perfect.

Okay, let me try this again.  Angela suggested to put the milk first then the shot of espresso… Could be. Could be 🙂

Best Brew Coffee Solutions, Inc, also provides the sugar and the creamer 🙂

Ever since we got this coffee machine,  B&C became an even happier place to be in 🙂  So to my dear friends, anytime you need a pick-me-up, you know where to go! Let’s catch up! 🙂

Thanks, Jason!
