"I've been working in coffee since I was 15. Cammy, my co-founder, and I both had jobs in coffee where we were working our butts off for other people, and we kinda just starting thinking and talking for fun a little bit about, 'Oh, should we do this? Should we open up our own shop?'
Then we kinda started putting pen to paper and slowly our dreams became a reality.
We took a trip to Europe together and did a lot of research and development for how we wanted our place to feel.
Otherwise, there's a coffee shop in Carpinteria called Lucky Llama, and that place is really rad. Rincon Brewery is great, and they have a burger with sweet potato fries thats out of this world. Casa Don Roge is a hole-in-the-wall for tacos next to a 7-Eleven, and that's a delicious little street taco place."
