Officially, a (semi)professional Barista
How long have I been saying I wanted to start a coffee business? Years and years. And all that talk finally led up to my first espresso catering gig this past Saturday.
I can’t even begin to tell you guys how nervous I was the entire week leading up to it. Friday night I barely slept. And Saturday I felt like I was on the brink of an anxiety attack all day long. But as soon as I set up and started pulling shots, I got in the zone and it all the anxiety melted away.
The wedding was actually a lot of fun. People were impressed with the setup and the drinks, which is good. And I already got asked if I was willing to travel to DC for a fall wedding. I, of course, said yes. Oh, and I got tipped too!
The feeling of accomplishment afterwards was amazing. And quite similar to how you feel after finishing a marathon. You are glad it is over, but you’re already looking forward to the next one. Honestly, I should have started doing this years ago. I really enjoyed it. And there was nobody stopping me but myself.
