  4. Hey guys. Would love some feedback about this. I'm looking for work (albeit casually) at the moment, and I decided to build a quick online CV, as I think it's more accessible to potential employers than email attachments. I do still attach a PDF of my print-out CV, but also give them the link to my online one. http://www.chrisweaver.co.uk/cv/ What do you guys reckon, and how would you improve or change it?
  5. Well I've been about on here a few times before (as my post count shall attest) but recently, I went insane, so not been on so much. I have however travelled across europe, spent WAYY too much money, taken lots of photographs, startd a novel and quit another coffee bar job. Hello everyone... again...!
  6. I just thought I'd say congrats to Chris on his inclusion in the December issue of Barista magazine. May you meteoric rise to coffee super-stardom continue, while I jump on every Chris Weaver-related band wagon there is lmao. Nah, good job mate. Keep up the great work
  7. Cafe Aroma in Lincoln was featured in the Lincolnshire Echo on 27 June. Read the article here Well done to Chris for getting featured - we look forward to hearing about your coffee competition preparation as the year progresses.
  8. For those who haven't noticed, Chris turned 21 today. In parts of the world (Australasia) that is a great milestone and is widely celebrated. Now you can legally enter a bar and drink in all US states (may not be entirely relevant to you in the short term ) Happy Birthday Chris !
  9. Well I know that the name of this thread sounds like some sort of friendly kids book, but alas it's worse than that. Since saturday, and starting back at work today, I've been off work due to a bit of a tumble down some stairs in the my flat. Alas wooden floors all round isn't conducive to a friendly walking environment. At first, as I happened to have a first aider with me... it was a suspected broken foot, however looking at the speed of recovery in the last few days, it seems that its purely badly bruised. It really bloody hurts though, so if I could have a bit of sympathy pouring in... Ha haa, only joking, but just remember guys, STAIRS ARE EVIL!! Bungalows FTW! Chris
  10. Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with Chris Weaver, manager and co-owner of Union Espresso in Lincoln(which had only opened a few days beforehand) Although not usually open on a Sunday I was fortunate enough to twist Chris's arm and with the offer of a pint afterwards I tempted him to open up, switch on the machine and pull some shots of HasBean Jailbreak and their house coffee Union - by local roaster Stokes. Whilst he was setting up I took a few photos of the cafe (these 4 made the grade so far) before rolling up my sleeves and creating a few espressos myself. Union has an edgy vibe, part New York loft space feel with a quirky, Russian-esque logo, creating a cult-like following even in its early days. I spotted the "Mark of the Union" badges being worn with pride by several locals and acquired one myself (they are the equivalent of a loyalty card - gaining you discounted drinks) Chris showed me the main cafe space which is still being developed (due to open in the new year). The plans sound interesting. At the moment there is seating for about 3 in the front of the shop, but with a mainly to-go trade this shouldn't be an issue. Union's location is in the middle of studentville, surrounded by the Lincoln Uni campus and I believe the atmosphere reflects this well. If you know any students in Lincoln, or happen to be passing through, then send them down to see Chris and his team and I'm sure they'll be well looked after.
