Barista 101 – Magsaysay Center for Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts (MIHCA)

Although I’m on a college already, I feel lost more than ever. I don’t know what I really want (to be) in life!

Until I decided to take a long break… I got bored, I missed school and also my friends! But unfortunately, I don’t want to go back in my university where  I used to study anymore. Some personal matters I think… So after a few months, I enrolled in one of the institute leading in Culinary Arts. But not in Culinary field. Hehe.  One of the short course they offer, Barista 101. They also have a Flairtending 101 and Bartending course.

I left my heart in the hotel-vibe of this school! From the beautiful ambiance of our training ground (the bar), from the front desk, actual cruise cabins, down to our rooms… all of these things, made me want to stay a little longer!

Not to mention that almost all of the people there were so nice! Very kind and hospitable. From the senior faculties who always greets and entertains you nicely down to our friendly guards. They’re always smiling! It’s like when you entered the institute already, all of your stress and problems was left outside!

Okay so here’s the real thing.
MIHCA is where I met Mr. Ernie Mesina. A role model of inspiration. He doesn’t failed to introduce the world of coffee to us… passionately and inspiring! We don’t just study, study and practice. We also had some great times with each other… we even share foods with some of the senior faculties! It feels like we’re really a big big Family.

After the training and days we shared together, I would love to say that I finally found my happiness! I already found what I really want! He never knew how much he turned me into an goal-oriented brat. I owe him big time. Sir, I am not going to waste all of the knowledge and skills you shared to me. I promise, I am going to be one of the greatest Barista someday… I’ll make you proud.
