The Coffee Barrister Story

Welcome to The Coffee Barrister! Thanks for checking out the about page.

Our story starts here

I’m Dave, a coffee enthusiast and home barista with over 3 years of coffee making experience. The Coffee Barrister started off as a place where I share my passion and knowledge for coffee! Since then, the blog has grown into a central hub for knowledge in the coffee space. In here, you’ll find coffee guides, tips & tricks, bean and gear reviews – all written by either myself or a few other coffee lovers!

In The Coffee Barrister, I want to share my passion with you, as one coffee enthusiast to another!

So, let me tell you how I got into the world of coffee… Well, I’ve always enjoyed it. I use to sneak ice coffee in high school – I studied in Asia, and it was HOT!

At college, I grabbed a cup of Costa’s every morning. However, it wasn’t until I moved to New York that I truly fell in love with coffee. At work, a colleague always took me to different coffee shops during breaks. She inspired me to open my eyes, to explore the coffee world beyond franchises like Starbucks.

Since then, I’ve became obsessed with coffee! I’ve tried a bunch of other artisan coffee shops, and even started brewing my own coffee at home. As my appreciation for coffee grew, so did my thirst for knowledge in this space.

I wanted to learn everything about coffee; it’s origin, how taste vary between regions, and most importantly, how to brew my own perfect cup of coffee at home. As a result, I’ve recently acquired the Specialty Coffee Association, SCA’s Coffee Skill Program – Foundation Level.

Through The Coffee Barrister, I hope to share my knowledge to those who want to follow a similar path in becoming barista that can brew criminally good coffee.

At The Coffee Barrister, we plan to create a community where other like-minded contributors can get involved. If you’re interested, contact us today!
