Well its out (although I’ve not seen it in print yet), the article I wrote for Barista magazine is on line at this link here, and I’m one of the featured articles in the on-line version which is very nice, add I’m one of the leading headlines on the cover. You don’t get to see the whole article without buying a copy (and I know you want to) but you get a flavour. Its also the first time I’ve seen the illustrations which I think are very cool.
The front cover is Mr Hoffmann the World Barista Champion of the galaxy and everything. I actually phoned him when I was asked to do the article to share it with someone who understands how excited I would be. He made all the right noises and told me all the right things, well done and alike. But strangely (its a weird world) when I phoned him he was walking around London taking lots of photos for the cover (well done Anette you did very well). Talk about always getting one up on me ALL of the time. I tell him I’m in the magazine he tells me he’s on the front cover 🙂
But I’m so pleased, at 33 years old its the first time I’ve ever seen any work I’ve done in print (well I can imagine what it looks like in print), and I’m rather proud of it as a piece of work (thanks Mark for all the proof reading), even if my Mom went “ohh that’s nice, anyway I’ve been…..”. I just wish I could show my old English teacher who was convinced “there is no place in society for a fool”. Well I wonder what she would think now.
So subscribe, send your life savings to Barista magazine, ohh and tell them I sent you they may ask me for another piece one day that doesn’t have “The Hoff” on the front page.
