My but it’s been a long while since I’ve put word to blog. And no small wonder: the world of fancy and delicious coffee’s exploded greatly in the past decade, writing about its joys has become an area of expertise in and of itself—a living, even.

I am also the Associate Editor at, a position I’ve been delighted to hold for several years working alongside friends to help elevate the coffee industry while being entertaining at the same time. They also let me write articles, which you can read here. I recently had the pleasure of recapping the evolution of the NYC coffee scene, which I’ve observed closely in the past decade, for the Village Voice. I’ve also written about coffee for Epicurious, Bon Appetit, Edible Manhattan/Brooklyn, and Imbibe, to name a few. For a long time, I wrote regularly about coffee and tea for
