Christopher has been a Barista at Bold Bean for two years; loves Guatemalan Asodiett and has strong feelings about VELVET SHORTS! He just might be the sweetest pea in the pod!
What is your favorite BB beverage for fall?
We have an amazing Single Origin Espresso on right now, the Guatemalan Asodiett, it’s got a great honey sweetness and a smooth body. Perfect for Fall or any season!
What are your origins as a Barista?
I’ve worked in coffee for years on more of [the] retail side. [I] transitioned to a barista role about two years ago, I love it, it’s completely changed my relationship with coffee.
What is one thing you will never wear again?
Velvet shorts, I think that’s the sweatiest I’ve ever been… :X Ya’ll velvet freaks can keep those, so soft but so sweaty.
What’s one thing you will never stop wearing?
Denim on Denim. I’m a massive fan of the ever versatile Canadian Tux. Wedding? Casual Party? Baby Shower? None changing ceremony? The canadian tux is your best friend.
How does your life influence your style?
Working with coffee has made me more of a practical dresser, it has to be comfortable and able to resist those coffee stains but I also still want to present myself decently. Fashion is great because as quiet/ shy guy it can sometimes act as the voice I have a hard time finding.
