I am a serious lover of both tea and coffee. I go out of my way to find the best coffee shops in new cities and always have too many coffee and tea gadgets for the small urban kitchens I’ve inhabited over the last few years. I like to think that it runs in my blood. I was born in Colombia to a coffee-growing family in the eje cafetero, a beautiful and lush coffee region. Coffee—growing it, selling it, drinking it—has always been part of my life. Little did I know I would get to work with its bright, underrated fruit: Cascara.
