sakiwaki The Empty Streets // #streetartnyc

Thanks to a Fever Ray mention last night, I'm hitting repeat on this, interspersed with some Nina Simone. A couple weeks ago, I played a compilation of her music-- I have since been focused on "Four Women." Her voice is pain and wisdom and clings to my soul. I'll go back to repeats now!

sakiwaki Finished. I've had this in my head for a couple of days now-- and on Friday I finally got materials to execute it. Finished it yesterday morning in time to gift it to Miss Iris who stopped by to hang. It makes me very happy. 4d

sakiwaki Weighted // #magmagrela in the #eastvillage from her summer invasion. Over the weekend, I took a panorama at the NYCB and realized, I could finally capture this piece too! As I headed to my hair stylist, I snapped this beauty! Score!

sakiwaki Spoon Drool // Mock me if you will, but as soon as we started setting up for slurping, I immediately went ga-ga for these Toby's Estate engraved spoons. Yes, I have a thing for spoons and this was totally upping the game in that department (I'll happily buy one). Also, if you're a coffee professional and are free at 3pm today-- @counterculturecoffee is hosting their professional development workshop today. Last wednesday of every month they have a get together to discuss and geek out on different coffee topics.
I sadly cannot make this one. Go! Its held at all of their training centers (NYC is on Broome St.). #caffeinecomfort + #tobysbrewschool

sakiwaki ▴▵Triangulation Cupping▵▴ Since I'm not working these next 4 weeks, I gotta keep this palate on point, so I attended Toby's Estate's public cupping. It was my first time doing a "triangulation cupping" where you identify the odd man out. Thanks for the caffeine!! #tobysestate // #caffeinecomfort // #tobysbrewschool 1w
  •   tobysbrooklyn Glad you had fun! Hope you can join us next month for our Minute by Minute cupping. 1w
  •   sakiwaki @tobysbrooklyn I heard (and saw on IG) you were doing that. I'm very intrigued and already tasting that grassy underdeveloped bean. Look forward to it, maybe at the BK location next time. =) 1w

sakiwaki ️ Snow Bathing ️ Some creatures love the snow, can we just remember that when we curse the gods for the wintry weather.

sakiwaki Peter Pan Cherries
There was an unofficial, Guatemala study-abroad reunion! These gals and I haven't been in the same room together since January 2013, when we decided to travel to Guatemala for a study abroad program. It was Tiff's first time in Greenpoint, and both their first times visiting Peter Pan Donuts! I'll cry if New York development destroys this pastry staple.

The plan was to make it to the latest NYCB artist series install, but I didn't realize viewing times were earlier in the day. We inadvertently snuck into the exhibition since a show was being let out and we didn't realize we weren't actually supposed to be there. Still super glad we got to catch these pieces by #DustinYellin. Layers of glass comprise each of the pieces. Incredibly beautiful and intricate work. // #psychogeographies

sakiwaki On this snowy day, I insisted on going to see some art shows before they close. While everyone else was annoyed, I was enjoying these giant snowflakes sometimes fly into my mouth or fall right on my lips, leaving cold impressions on my face. I don't care that it's cold, or that the following day my entire lower body is going to be exhausted-- gimme more visuals!

sakiwaki Vita Mi Vida // Finally visited the crew over at Caffe Vita today. Miss Heather (barista) and Garrett (roaster) were chill friendly folks. I enjoyed a Yirgacheffe Konga pourover (plum's the word that came to mind for me) and PacNor, their version of a cortado. Stay warm NYC! P.S. I'm back outdoors, with limitations! Let's get together and snap pics! // #caffeinecomfort 2w
