My name is Tom, welcome to BigCupOfCoffee.com. I’ve always loved coffee, and I want to convey my passion for it to you via this website.

My story with coffee

I started drinking coffee when I was in college. It was a great way to wake up in the morning and get myself going. I would always drink it black, with no sugar or cream. I found that it made me more alert and awake, and I loved the taste. Drinking coffee quickly became a part of my daily routine and became a special treat that I looked forward to every day.

Now, years later, I still enjoy drinking coffee every day. It’s become a part of my identity and something that I love.

In 2022, I chose to deepen my knowledge about coffee making by completing a Barista course at the Barista Campus of Budapest.

As a barista, you learn a lot about coffee. You learn how to grind the beans, how to brew the perfect cup of coffee, and how to froth milk for latte art.

You also learn about different types of coffee, from light roasts to dark roasts. And of course, you learn about all the different ways to make coffee, from cappuccinos to espresso.

I knew a lot about coffee before, but this was exactly what I needed to take it to the next level.

Will I be opening a café sometime in the future?

Probably.

But until then, BigCupOfCoffee.com will be where I talk and share everything I know.
