It has been over a year in the planning and development, but www.baristaexchange.com is now live in it's beta version.
The website is designed to be a great networking opportunity for everyone from baristas and shop owners to coffee enthusiasts and even coffee growers. Ideally this can be a place to meet other baristas from around the world, and also exchange ideas and information freely. To work it will take the involvement of it's members.
The idea was inspired by not only my love to travel, but also from my experience of studying and working abroad, and in the US in other coffee bars. Even if traveling is not an option, the site is great for networking, sharing photos, videos, and blogs.
Feel free to create an account and join. Feedback will be key during this beta version.
