We will state the differences between Cow's Milk & Alternative Milk, discuss why Barista Blends exist and how they are different from the regular types.

Education Director & Trainer, Chocolate Fish Coffee Roasters
Born and bred in Puerto Rico, Elvira has always been surrounded by coffee. She grew up learning how to make coffee with her grandma at a young age and scavenging through her uncle’s collection of remnants from coffee farms in the 18th, 19th, and 20th century. In 2014, her mother took her to the Coffee and Chocolate Expo and there she took her first Barista course. Meeting many Producers, Roasters, and Baristas that day, she realized Coffee was the industry she wanted to be in. While completing her BBA-HR degree, she continued her search for coffee knowledge by attending classes at the Escuela de Café y Baristas de Puerto Rico and went on to complete her SCAA Heritage Barista Level 1 certificate. Elvira now works as the Education Director & Trainer for Chocolate Fish Coffee Roasters in Sacramento, CA. She has continued classes through the SCA, completing her intermediate Barista Level, taking the Instructor Development Program course, and earning her license as a trainer through the SCA. Member of the SCA and Barista Guild, Elvira lives and breathes coffee!
