My nature has always been to pursue the things that I am most passionate about in life. The passion for coffee started young. I will never forget my first coffee shop experience when my Dad took me to get an Italian Cream Soda at a local coffee shop in Lafayette. It was eye opening to me to see how cool and inviting this thing known as a “coffee shop” could be. Since that day I have always sought to bring that experience that felt so personal and different to others.
I have been truly blessed to travel and experience coffee around the world. I have been to the birth place of the espresso bar in Italy and to its more modern expressions in Portland, Seattle, and New York. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced. My desire in starting a local coffee shop was to take those experiences that I had and bring them home to share.
