Café Justo

Our newest customer is a shop that I feel compelled to tell everyone about. Café Justo is a small kiosk located in a building that hosts a quite eclectic, very Baltimorean, assortment of establishments. Aside from getting a great cup of coffee, you can do your laundry, get legal advice, buy a lottery ticket, or send money to Mexico.

Amanda, the owner, saw potential in an underserved market and brought her passion for coffee where others might fear to tread. Other roasters had turned her down due to the tiny size of her operation. Maybe I'm a terrible businessman, but I could care less how big or small a shop is... I just want to know how serious the owner is about making great coffee.

Besides, I think there's something very cool about being able to get a properly made latte (complete with latte art) in a laundromat!

Silas Andrew Givens

He was born almost 3 weeks ago, yet every time I hold him in my arms, I'm still in awe.

So tiny.

So perfect.

Another reason to try to be the best father, the best husband, I can be.
