When ever I did barista training with my team I would always stress how important it was not to waste coffee. I would always say "each bean has been hand picked" I never thought about the sorting process until today. We went to this great cafe just near where we are staying and these girls were sorting the beans hand full by hand full. Wow! What an amazing pain staking process coffee goes through before it gets to the consumer.
I had to walk these stairs to get coffee yesterday. I thinks it's a cruel joke to put coffee on the top floor of any building but at the same time I am thankful that I will have worked off the milk before I have even had a sip.
