We'll start off at the coffee shop that I work at! It is very popular in the area, and always flooded with amazing vibes- and if there isn't a long line, I can sneak behind the counter and show you some of my latte art skills. We'll then make our way to three other coffee shops in the area. On our way to each one, I’ll be filling you in on the history of the area we are walking through, and the kind of espresso we will be tasting. Depending on the day, the coffee shops will be pretty busy! So most of my talking will be done before we enter.
Born and raised in NYC, I have been studying and working in the lovely streets of Harlem for almost six years. I've been working with coffee for about three of those, and am very proud of my latte art skills and coffee knowledge! I learned everything I know as a barista at an amazing, cozy coffee shop based in Hamilton Heights. A few months ago, I began going to every shop in Harlem to taste their espresso, and though I am not finished, I figured many other people would enjoy coming along with me on this beautiful and enjoyable journey.
As we walk towards our destinations, we'll be roaming the beautiful Harlem streets: an area known for its overflowing culture, diversity, and flavor. The coffee shops I will be taking you to have the most friendliest and passionate baristas, giving you a different experience each time you try a new espresso.
We will be walking to each coffee shop, so just make sure you are able to come along with us! We will also have to walk up and down some stairs.
