Coffee in the Morning and Music in the Kitchen

The launch of Cocina Campesina is mirroring how I tend to start my day: dancing to some soulful sounds while anticipating my first cup of smooth caffeinated beverage. I proudly say that More Than This and Crema will get our first dinner off to a proper start, providing live music and coffee.

Crema

“When I think food justice, I think of giving justice to the food that you are preparing. We get these amazing ingredients, both local and internationly. Fresh produce, meat, & coffee. And it is our duty as preparers to not fuck it up.

A taste of crema

Crema is the lovely layer of thickly effervescent foam that defines well-crafted espresso, an emulsion of the essential oils contained in the coffee. This presence of a thick layer of richly aromatic, reddish brown crema indicates that all culinary factors were met satisfactorily during the preparation of the shot. Espresso is all in the nose. The aroma of espresso lives in the crema so swirl it around. Get your nose right down in there. Inhale deeply.”

-Noah Price, owner of Crema

More Than This

More Than This: This femme-tastic duo met while canvassing for the local rape crisis center back in autumn 2009. Combining sultry vocals with jazzy piano texture, they create a unique folk sound, with a twist of R&B and rock. More Than This is turned on by new wave, and loves to squeeze fresh juices from the 80’s, with a special inspirational love for Roxy Music. To these funky ladies, Food Justice means access to local, affordable, non-GMO produce and other healthy goodies for all, but especially for marginalized communities and peoples.

-Celeste Spink and April
