We love coffee
After years of working in some of NYC’s finest third wave coffee establishments–Bluestone Lane, Terremoto, Kobrick Coffee (where we first met behind the bar)–Gio and I grew frustrated. We asked: why is there so much incredible coffee being produced and so few people able to make and appreciate it to its fullest capacity? We know the fault isn’t with the roasters, who are sourcing and producing coffee at the highest level in history. Nor is it the fault of the city’s coffee lovers, who just want to improve their day with a familiar brew.
Then we realized the problem is us: the Baristas.
All the extraordinary care and attention paid to coffee during its planting, growth, harvest, drying, processing, shipping, grading, and roasting–none of it matters if it isn’t brewed with love and respect.
So we started Home Brew.
