The Best Road Trip Ever

The Best Road Trip Ever

Elizabeth Chai has found her way into a vortex of awesomeness that has crushed us with jealousy. Elizabeth is a designer, writer, photographer, CREMA-friend, and, most notably, an insatiable lover of coffee -- a love that, last week, launched her forth on a road trip for the ages.

We call it a road trip, she calls it a Cross Country Camper Coffee Crawl (#crosscountrycampercoffeecrawl), a La Marzocco-sponsored jaunt across America with a Linea Mini, a MINI Cooper, a mini camper, and a miniature Greyhound.

One Question Please: Al Keating of Coffee Supreme

We freakin' love Al Keating. Al is the managing and creative director for Coffee Supreme in New Zealand, where he has helped turn a popular local cafe into a coffee company with global influence. Al is enthusiastic about coffee, but is even more jazzed about people, as evidenced by his talk at the 2014 SCAA Symposium (we realize "talk at the SCAA Symposium" isn't exactly the most thrilling-sounding link, but watch it: it's so great). We got to hang out with Al on Coffee Supreme's jaunt through the States last year, and asked him one question. You can virtually hang out with Al on Twitter and Instagram.  

One Question Please: Susan Sherrick

One Question Please: Susan Sherrick

Susan Sherrick is everywhere. She curates the Sherrick and Paul Gallery in Fort Houston. She makes deliciously cool leather handbags. She's also in CREMA from time to time -- her charm and easy going style have always made us big fans of hers. Susan has spent her career working in art galleries across the country, curating work from artists around the world. We're jazzed to have her in Nashville -- and we asked her this one question.

At CREMA, we try to live out the mantra "Do one thing and do it well." For us, that one thing is coffee -- we want to do it the best we can. 

We are so interested in and inspired by our peers. To get to the heart of their "one thing," we've previously run a series called "What Inspires Us" in this space. That was a fun, deep look into the lives of our fellow Nashvillians.
