In case you haven’t heard in the shop or weren’t at the kickin’ going-away party, Julia Rexon and Seth Lester are leaving Philadelphia this month, and thus (quite sadly) won’t be gracing the bar at Spruce Street Espresso anymore.
Julia is moving to New York City, while Seth is continuing on his quest to make great coffee all across America.
We’re sad to lose such talented baristas, but wish them both the best of luck.
Here’s a slideshow of the party action, which included an abundance of coffee friends, delicious arroz con pollo, plenty of adult beverages, music, and a teary toast from Miss Emily Schumacher. Oh, and an impromptu latte-art throwdown with a $1 buy-in.
