Luis Fernandez on the street, with fruit.
Yesterday, I decided to head over to Brooklyn to check out the famed Blue Bottle Coffee. From 14th Street, take the L train to Brooklyn and get off at the first stop. As I emerge from the underground station, I run into Luis Fernandez Velez of Colombia's Amor Perfecto standing at the corner eating a cup of fresh fruit!
Turns out Luis Fernandez's son goes to school in New York and lives in the neighborhood. Luis Fernandez is hanging out on his way back to Bogota from Oslo (where he attended the Nordic Barista Cup) and awaiting the USPS delivery of his Extract Mojo. We head to Blue Bottle for a coffee.
A small world, indeed!
