    Hi, I'm a frustrated artist whom has had to do other thing's in life to pay for the everyday things including the coffee habit. I've been a builders laborer, storeman, delivery driver, salesman, freelance illustrator, art tutor and the last fifteen years or so mainly a wardie/orderly including the previous couple of jobs on the side. Still do some creating on the side more hobby than anything to keep me sane as well as enjoying a nice coffee two to three times a day.
    Cheers.

    Heh, forgot about this thread and post! Well, 7 years on and I got my EMBA, but dropped the MCom as it wasn't doing much for me. Moved to Melbourne and involved in NBN construction projects, setting up new contract work processes and building operations capacity. Was running an RTO just prior so enjoying getting back to some semi-hands on work in what is now a familiar space for me. Hoping next year to have kicked off a brewery in Vietnam and a couple of digital platform start-ups, but we'll see how it goes...

    Civil design engineer here. Roads, dams, drains, sanitary systems, etc. So long as there are no moving parts or eletrickery, chances are I would enjoy designing it. Mainly involved in the project engineering side of things now, but looking to fill my spare time with some volunteer work and keep the technical skills sharp.

    Carpenter by trade. Once my first child came along two years ago I know I needed to have a superb coffee fix at home. Once I bought the rocket Giotto home it has become an obsession. Even the little boy has to sit on the bench behind me watching the shots get poured. I've even been considering changing jobs recently and opening my own cafe. Who knows maybe sometime in the future.

    Dino what's your experience of coffee in restaurants like? Mine usually involves regret, but I haven't been to that many restaurants.

    Semi retired now working about 20 hours a week, have operated a lawnmowing and garden maintenance business for 27 years, prior to that I was a compositor/typesetter in the newspaper industry for 25 years.
    Coffee has been a huge part of my life since I discovered Coffeesnobs in 2007--the rest is history.
