I went to Colorado to visit my twin sister Jeannine. At one point she had a coffee cart as well, and quickly found her passion for honey. So she parlayed her coffee cart into a honey stand called I Love Honey. I made cold brew while she sold honey. It was a perfect match.
We had an amazing trip in San Francisco for the West Coast Craft Fair at the Fort Mason Center. It is a design show featuring hundreds of selected designers, artists, and craftspeople. We must have made over 2,000 coffees in 2 days!
McConnell's Ice Cream is a legendary Santa Barbara company. They've been around for 70 years, through 3 generations, and now they have an ice cream truck. I love teaming up with other vendors, ESPECIALLY an ice cream one for affogatos. Coffee + Ice Cream = Magic in the mouth.
Wylder Coffee Co and Welcome collabored in Ojai for a beautiful wedding at the famous Ojai Valley Inn. Wylder Coffee created a probiotic coffee that is straight up delicious and good for your gut that we served up to all the guests.
We were honored to be a part of a fundraiser for African Women Rising. This organization works with over 8,000 women in Northern Uganda, training them in capital and savings, and adult literacy. We raise a few hundred dollars to give back to the organization. That's a lot of coffee!
We were up in Sonoma County with Welcome for a corporate retreat hosted by Vino Volo. Annamarie and I popped up for all of those who had been drinking wine all day. I was told we were lifesavers and the most loved there. People really love good coffee.
My life is all things coffee. When I'm not popping up with the coffee cart at events, I am training, practicing, researching, and delivering coffee. I work a lot with Dart Coffee Co., a local roaster, as their educator and as there random task person.
