“I’ve been a barista at The Nest for 7 years. Every morning, I get in bright and early to start my preparation work - I test and taste the espresso to make sure that it’s ready for the customers. It’s important to hit the very delicate balance of flavours; sweet, sour and bitter. Personally, my go-to coffee is a cappuccino. Whenever there is a bit of downtime at work, I like to hone my coffee-making skills. I practise my latte art and learn how to get the perfect texture of steamed milk. I like to keep my skills sharp. I would describe myself as confident, ambitious and, at times, witty - when I’m in the right mood. I am also hardworking and task-oriented. I love coming in to work every day and to keep busy. What I like most about working here are my colleagues, because they are also my good friends. I also have a lot of regular customers who come in just for my coffee. I’ve read somewhere that drinking coffee can increase longevity - not sure why, but maybe you can give it a try!”
「我喺 The Nest 度做咖啡師做咗七年。我每朝早一返工就開始做準備功夫。我會試吓啲咖啡，預備客人嚟。要搵到甜、酸、苦味嘅平衡係好重要。我自己最鍾意嘅就係 cappuccino。工作時候冇咁忙嗰陣，我就會自己練習整咖啡，拉花呀，又或者研究點樣將啲奶做到最好嘅口感。我鍾意不停鍛鍊自己嘅技術。我會話我係一個有信心、上進心，同埋有時都會幾風趣嘅人。我好勤力同埋喜歡有目標。每日返工我都好開心 - 最鍾意嘅係我啲同事，因為佢哋都係我嘅好朋友。我都有好多熟客會特登過嚟飲我啲咖啡。唔知喺邊度睇到話飲咖啡可以長命啲 - 我唔知呀，不過你可以試吓！ 」
「讀書嗰時，我最喜歡嘅科目就係數學同埋物理。我鍾意啲嘢準確同細致 - 呢啲特點我返工做嘢時都會睇到。我最好嘅朋友係喺小學識嘅，不過佢依家喺荷蘭住。要同好朋友保持聯繫係好難嘅事，特別係如果佢哋離開咁遠，無論大家幾咁親密都好。我都打算去遊多啲歐洲。我去過嘅地方最鍾意嘅係克羅地亞 - 真係超靚。聽講話 Game of Thrones 好多係喺嗰度拍嘅，不過我冇睇過。你都冇？啲人話個結局比較令人失望，所以我哋冇嘥時間都可能係好事！」
