My first job in Lubbock was as a barista at Daybreak Coffee Roasters. I didn't know anything about coffee before. I just thought working at a coffee shop always sounded cool and I was thrilled when they actually hired me.

Seventeen years later, I still know how to make pretty much every single espresso drink you could possibly want. The skills I developed there stayed with me, and I bet I could walk into any coffee shop today and still know what to do.
