Sonya Devon in Da House

Some of the best aspects of tussling in barista contests is not the minute of fame that winners experience or even the free boodle that comes with the territory, it is actually the relationships tht you make with various other dedicated coffee-heads. We were excited to discover one of our barista buddies, who recently took an interesting brand-new job with Brooklyn’s Variety Coffee Roasters, graced our premises. A big shout out to Sonya Devon who was gracious enough to chat extensively with us about working with a brand-new roaster, competing in barista contests, as well as what’s it like to work at the best place NYC for coffee.
