A piece I shot, designed and wrote about my current obsession, coffee!

We’re in the middle of a great coffee revolution here in Philadelphia, in the past two years a slew of new coffee shops have setup shop on our streets, we’ve even got a new mobile coffee truck serving artisanal coffee courtesy of Rival Bros. Coffee. These shops have slowly started to change our drinking habits and enlighten us to the Third Wave coffee movement which focuses on ethical sourcing from small farms, sustainability, roasting in small batches and appreciating coffee as culinary product like wine, wherein we pay attention to the complexities and variations in flavor.

Design Consumption Vol 5: Elixr Coffee

In the heart of Center City, stands a coffee shop inspired by Indonesia and Seattle. Evan Inatome opened Elixr earlier in the year and already it’s a neighborhood favorite and national success, receiving attention from The New York Times along with beloved coffee shops like Shot Tower, Spruce St. Espresso, Bodhi and Ultimo. Even though it seemed like last fall and winter there was a new coffee shop opening up every month, Elixr brought something new to the game. Here you can learn how to enjoy coffee extracted from brewing methods we haven’t really been exposed to in Philly until now; it’s a unique experience even for this foodie town.

One of my favorite pieces that I’ve written so far. I learned a lot about coffee while interviewing Evan, he inspired me to continue my research into specialty coffee and expand my palette. My usual is a cappuccino or macchiato but there’s a world of hand poured coffee that is amazing!
