Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
Caffe Amadeus in Indiana, PA, was my first coffee home during college. We roasted our coffee at the shop, and I fell in love. After a year of learning the skills from the wonderful Szep family, I moved to Scranton, my hometown, to take a job at a newspaper. I couldn't bear to quit coffee, so I started working at THE place to be in downtown Scranton -- Northern Light Espresso Bar, which serves Gimme! Coffee. I fell in love with espresso at NLEB and even more in love with my co-workers. A little more than a year later, I wound up in another part of Pennsylvania: Philadelphia. I was lucky to land full-time work at Spruce Street Espresso, and now I get to serve awesome Counter Culture coffee with more awesome co-baristas. And now I'm just simply in love with what I do. :)
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Portland or bust.
About Me:
I love print media, DIY, Polaroid film, spicy food and record collecting almost as I much coffee. If you asked me three years ago if I would be putting my life "on hold," to play with coffee all day long, I would've thought you were crazy. Now I can't imagine it any other way.
About My Company:
Spruce Street Espresso is a tiny, quaint -- but great -- shop in the Gayborhood. We serve Counter Culture coffee as a pour over or French press. The 'spro kicks butt and all the ladies who work there are Philly TNT winners. Come see why.

We have a blog, and sometimes I write on it: www.sprucestespresso.wordpress.com
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
community!
