I'm a traveling barista with a mission: to bring specialty coffee to people of Syracuse, and to get people interacting again. I'm tired of laptops and silence in cafes, so I started the Counter Talk Project, where I get together with folks for a Social Exchange. I bring the coffee to the table - I roast it myelf at home, grind and brew it right in front of you - you can bring whatever you think is a fair trade! Cookies, crocheted mittens, a sincere dialogue, or a list of dirty jokes; it's all fair game! Hit me up on twitter and we can schedule a sit-down-brew-down affair.
