Now, with my new discovery of this amazing new world, how could I work at Starbucks anymore? With coffee that has a " 1 year " expiry date as aposed to the 10 to 14 days that coffee actually starts going stale and looses its unique flavours. I had to get out! Just in time, JJBeans very first location branching out of the Vancouver area opened in my little town, Port Moody, and just 5 mins walk from my home!
I now work for this amazing company and I am learning so much about coffee every day. I am so excited for the journey in front of me, hopefully helping me towards my dream of opening my own coffee shop one day.
I strongly urge anyone that goes to Starbucks everyday, to step outside of your comfort zone, and try out some coffee from a local roaster, try drinking straight espresso, try a medium roast without cream and sugar and notice the brilliant flavour notes. Plus the benefit of supporting local small businesses is always a great feeling. Check out JJBeans Website to check out what they are all about! They also do some pretty neat stuff for the communities they buy coffee from. http://www.jjbeancoffee.com
