VP of Getting Shit Done at Oakland Coffee
I roll out of bed and have a long cuddle session with my pup. Then I have a long cuddle session with my coffee.
My pre-coffee brain isn’t equipped for the outside world. Coffee first, then we can go places.
I swap between Cerro De Oro and Father of All Dark Roasts. Black, always!
I’m a French Press + burr grinder kind of gal. It’s quick, easy, and allows me to brew an exorbitant amount of coffee for just myself.
I just finished the latest season of Ear Hustle. Hands down the best podcast around.
Seeing people work through the chaos and noise to do what they believe is right. In a world that is so often discouraging, it’s inspiring to see folks still trying to make a difference.
I’m trying to get back into running. I’m currently in the “everything hurts” phase. Hoping to get to the “everything hurts only some of the time” phase soon.
I’m Italian, so I started drinking coffee as a toddler. It’s been a steady go since then. I guess phasing out milk and sugar in my coffee has been the biggest change.
Give me a classic diner breakfast any day. Especially Ole’s Waffle Shop on Alameda!
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. It’s not always easy, but it’s worth it. With work, relationships, mental health. All of it.
Hot. Like skin melting hot. That’s the good stuff.
Ella Fitzgerald and Rupi Kaur
Seeing live music again, especially at all of the rad independent venues around the Bay.
