Hi there! Welcome to Our Great Coffee.
My name is Victor Rivero, and I am the creator of this website. I am 32 years old, and have been a barista for the last 14 years of my life. When I got started I was likely just like you, had very little knowledge of coffee and its greatness. Over the course of my career I learned more and have started to appreciate this warm, rich drink more and more. Just 5 years ago, I left the bar I worked at and started my own coffee cafe. It has been a blast!
As a cafe that specializes in specialty coffee, we have set on a mission to provide everyone with fantastic coffee, they otherwise perhaps maybe wouldn’t have found. This means that we not just provide great coffee, but we make every customize every single cup of brew we make. We ask customers what they want and find a coffee bean, roast, and brewing method that suits them. It’s been a much larger success than I could ever have hoped for.
I have recently taken part in the world barista championships, and while I did not reach the final 16, I have enjoyed this experience thoroughly, and it has been one of the reasons I started Our Great Coffee. I have met so many incredible people during this event, and through talking to them, I found that we all thought the same thing. Our love of coffee it unmatched by the outside world, and one of the reasons for this is that there is a lack for a website that spells everything coffee related out to people that are less traversed in the coffee lingo.
So I have built Our Great Coffee as a resource website for not only baristas and coffee aficionados, but also for those people that just like coffee but have never felt that spark to explore further than the cup they get from their local Starbucks branch. I have written articles for people that perhaps want to expand their coffee knowledge, and I have been trying to get as much information across as I possibly can without trying to sound like I know everything better.
Because in the end, everyone’s taste in coffee is different. I will not try to argue this, all I hope for is that people find my website informative. I sincerely hope you will find the coffee related answers you have been looking for, and you get to explore the wonderful world of rich and bold coffee over and over again.
