What a great idea?! Right?

This is home to a personal project that I started on a whim.

Fourth Wave Barista Trading Cards are modeled on baseball cards and feature baristas I've come to know.

Why “Fourth Wave”? What does that mean?

Folks who work in specialty coffee today are at the forefront of the fourth wave of coffee evolution. Third Wave coffee is the recognition that coffee can be treated like wine—a fine agricultural product that can exhibit the place and care of its growth and expertise of its crafting. Fourth Wave Baristas are the people who have grown up in this culture and are able to talk knowledgeably and comfortably about it.

You can also stay up to date on this project by following @FourthWaveBarista on Instagram. Enjoy!
