I grew up in Greenfield in the heart of Pittsburgh.
Toni Morrison’s short story “Recitatif.”
The Pea Blossom Matcha Latte. The vibrant colors make it a crowd pleaser. There’s always a reaction when I serve it.
I’m in a bookstore, spending too much money on books.
The Shadyside Sunrise in a cortado glass. I call it a “courtside sunrise.”
Mitski and Mitski-based radio stations. I like contemplative, borderline-sad vibes while brewing things.
Madeleine Bakery & Bistro in Regent Square. It also happens to be the bakery that we use for our scones and croissants. I’m particularly passionate about the buttery croissant.
