Here is a list of many of the resources that have been influential to me and many others. There are a few books on this list that I have not completed, but they are definitely known for being fantastic. I will update this as necessary. Hit me up if you think something should be added.
Dangerous Grounds – Yes, this TV show is a bit extreme; okay, very extreme. But it is still beneficial for learning more about what it takes to source coffee.

How to Do Latte Art (Ryan Soeder, who currently works for Sunergos Coffee, although these videos were made when he was working at Counter Culture)
Angels’ Cup – An essential app for recording all of your cupping notes.
Barista Magazine – This is a relatively new offering; you can now read Barista Magazine for free on your mobile device. You can always read it for free on their website, but with this app you are able to download it and read it later.
