sakiwaki Ovenly Sweet // Thanks to @halopigg who made me finally follow-through on my wish to visit Ovenly by dropping me off directly at their shop. I sat in the natural light soaked space and enjoyed a warm moment with some Guatemala Stumptown and their deliciously baked cookies. That salted chocolate chip was incredible. Thanks for the smiles ladies! 1d

sakiwaki Crop to Cup // Our hidden gem in the Gowanus, who carry some of the finest African coffee, have stopped roasting and have become exclusively greenbean suppliers. Their cafe now makes lattes, pourovers and all the works using roasted coffee from folks they sourced for. Here we had the Misty Valley Yirgacheffe roasted by Coffee Emporium, a Cincinnati based roastery. 6d

sakiwaki Aggressive Encounters // Guys, its Gowanus Open Studios and therefore your chance to get to visit so many great spaces and artists. My only pre-work desire was #Elbowtoe's studio, photographed here with a piece he did in the hallway. He's also got an opening tonight at RJampol in the not-so-hipped out section of the LES (191 Henry Street). // #GOS2014 or as I've decided to distinguish it from Greenpoint: #GOWOS2014 6d

sakiwaki Osmosis Flow // Some #Archtober love at #SituationNY in SOHO. I had so much fun in this incredibly trippy installation. There were parts cocoon, parts Alien, parts Osmosis Jones (so says Chris) and sensory overload! // #makeportraits in #happyplaces 1w

sakiwaki Toby's Myriad // It was such a great end of the day getting to taste most of the Toby's Estate varieties. Have I told you how much I love being able to roast and work with my favorite local coffee roasters?!?! I appreciate everyone who has helped my coffee lexicon and has helped teach me. I can't get enough, though I am now a mixture of super caffeinated and tipsy from post-work drinks. #tobysbrooklyn + #caffeinecomfort 3w

sakiwaki Serenity Now // Today has been an incredibly annoying day. I wish some old-school working class values could make a comeback. I'm struggling to figure out how to motivate folks to just care. Care enough to show up. Care enough to put effort. Care enough to take pride and strive for excellence (or something close). Care enough to be an example to others. Where and why did that mentality go? 3w

sakiwaki Happy International Coffee Day! // Did you know it is common to find tiny rocks/stones in green beans sacks? It has a lot to do with the drying process in many countries, sometimes they get by; its why roasters come with a destoner that separates coffee beans from rocks. We roast on a 10lb scale, so we're able to do the quality control ourselves. Here we have freshly roasted Organic Mexico Santa Catarina, that I'm hand bagging for retail. Its one of my favorites and only available at our location. // #thirdand3rd 4w
