Follow up to the working barista conundrum…

3 Jul

OK, so a slightly different blog post to the usual and one that shan’t be a common theme, but I felt the need to empty my mind slightly into the Internet.

That not-withstanding, Gwilym Davies made the suggestion of a working barista co-op. An idea I think is absolutely excellent.  Forgiving the logistical issues this would require conquering in order to be truly equitable, this sounds like an excellent plan.

Though I know most speciality shops don’t have profit margins as lovely as some would imagine, would there be shops willing to help get this off the ground? Would there be people willing to donate time to keeping this operating?

I would love to see someone take this idea and formulate it into a working model.  I have no knowledge of such thinks so I would willingly be a member of such a program but I would have no business in running or organising it.

    Just seen this blog post, Alex. Is this idea linked to Coffee Common?
