This is my space to talk about one of the things I am most passionate about: beverages. I have been working in the coffee industry for quite a number of years now.
I started out at a Caribou Coffee, but quickly moved on to a shop in Ypsilanti Michigan called the Ugly Mug. From there I was recruited to be the head trainer at a coffee bar in Ann Arbor called the common cup.
I spent a few years teaching coffee classes and doing some consulting on the side. Now I live in Chicago. For a while I was serving coffee at Loyola University, but now I am working with Ipsento Coffee and Coffee Ambassadors.
Ipsento is a great coffee shop in the Buck town neighborhood. We are working hard to make sure you get the best cup every time you come in. If you are in Chicago stop by.
Coffee Ambassadors is a dirrect trade coffee roaster in Chicago. We are turning out some of the best coffees I've ever had. If you're interested in getting Ambassadors' coffee in your shop/school/church/work send me a message and I'll give you a call! Billy[dot]kangas[at]gmail[dot]com
