Coffee professionals have few opportunities to network and share resources. Beyond chatting with coworkers and subscribing to industry magazines, most baristas and shop owners are left in the lurch when it comes to expanding their craft and connecting with others.
But here’s the thing with the coffee industry: It’s built on collaboration. This collaboration happens not just between baristas and local businesses, but between roasters and farmers, producers and general managers. Our entire industry relies on a chain of people working together to find new, innovative experiences. There’s a reason why customers might find their baristas too uppity. It’s because our craft demands more than making a pot of coffee and pouring it.
The Coffee Club Network is a space for coffee professionals to share experiences and resources, but also to connect with one another. We foster a global coffee community. Specialty coffee isn’t always an accessible or cheap option for some folks, but we want to make it an equitable, sustainable activity – for both coffee professionals and their regulars.
On this site, you’ll find a variety of ways to connect. From equipment reviews and first-hand experiences to stories of beans sourced from far-off places, this is a one-stop shop for everything your coffee community needs. If you’re interested in writing a guest post or in telling us about your coffee practice, drop us a line. We’re always willing and ready to listen.
