East Coast Barista

Saturday, August 07, 2004


Welcome to my brand new site.
I will be treating this as an online journal, gallery, rant and news site as well as providing links.
As the title suggests, one of the topics that will be covered here is
Coffee, one of my great earthly passions. I work as a professional Barista and a bar trainer at Gimme! Coffee here in Ithaca, NY....where we are steadily representing the east coast espresso scene(the supposed under dog of gourmet coffee standards). We are in the business of espresso as a high class culinary art form.(more on this later)...Other topics? Glad you asked...
Guitar, particularly into blues at the moment.
Christianity, My lifestyle and all consuming relationship with Jesus Christ.
Life in general...
Thanks for stopping by,
-Chris Deferio
