Whiskey or craft beer?

Favourite Internet pet celebrity?

R: We have a local bicycle & coffee company called Tru Fix Kry and one of the owner’s Labrador is a celebrity – you can Facebook him, his name is Puika Bobis Rabarbers (Boy Bobby Rhubarb). (1)
 

Most awkward moment in your coffee career?


P: Competing for the first time. (0)
R: Probably when I started working in King Coffee Service. I thought I knew everything about coffee but I was proved otherwise by the guys already working here. That was awkward because I came to the interview very high and mighty. It was a very educational experience. (1)
 

What advice would you offer to people new to the world of speciality coffee?


P: Make new mistakes, there is no reason for you to do the same one that everyone else has already done. (1)
R: Embrace it, but be prepared to never know everything about coffee. Us Latvians have a saying: the deeper you go into a forest, the more trees you will find. I find this very appropriate regarding coffee. (0)
