“Life begins after coffee.” We all know that feeling, right? This simple truth is what makes coffee the 2nd most consumed beverage in the world. It’s more than just a drink, it’s a daily ritual, a moment of pause, and for many, the start of something great.

Tom Fontana – head barista at BigCupOfCoffee.com

I’m Tom Fontana, and it’s this universal love for coffee that inspired me to work on BigCupOfCoffee.com. I’m not just a coffee enthusiast: I’m a certified barista with years of hands-on experience in the world of coffee, from pulling espresso shots in a busy café to exploring the coffee plantations of Costa Rica.

My journey into coffee began in college, working at a local café. It was there that I developed not just a love for coffee, but a real understanding of what makes a great cup. Learning the art and science behind coffee brewing, I was fascinated by how changing a single variable could transform the taste.

After getting my barista certification, I deepened my knowledge by exploring the source of coffee itself. In Costa Rica, I witnessed firsthand the careful process of coffee production – from the nurturing of coffee plants to the intricate steps of bean selection and roasting. This experience wasn’t just enlightening; it was transformational.

But let’s keep it real – my daily coffee routine is pretty straightforward nowadays. Each morning, I brew a cup (or two) at home, varying between a robust espresso and pour over. Sharing this ritual with my wife is one of the simple pleasures of our mornings. I like my coffee black, but sometimes indulging in a caramel macchiato feels great.

Beyond coffee, I’m also a guitar teacher, blending melodies with the rhythm of brewing. I believe in mastering your craft, whether it’s creating the perfect blend or strumming a chord.

At BigCupOfCoffee.com, we’re serious about coffee. From in-depth brewing guides to reviews of the latest gear, everything is backed by years of experience and a deep understanding of what makes coffee great. It’s not just about selling products; it’s about sharing knowledge and a passion for coffee.
