When Amy forgets to drink coffee.

 Amy Smith

Company: Headlong Dance Theater

Artistic occupation:
Co-director of above [and choreographer and dancer]

First experience with coffee that made you understand coffee: Living in Seattle in 1990, and having espresso for the first time. In the mornings I would drink a quadruple shot of espresso and then go to my shitty job at a record store.

Coffee you drink at home:
Starbucks from the ACME, or if we are lucky Blue Bottle (from SF) or Bucklyn (from Brooklin, ME).

How you like your coffee:
Half and half, no sugar

Average no. of cups per day:

Fave coffee shop: Old school = La Colombe, New School = Ultimo.

Fave fancy coffee drink: Dry cappuccino.

What’s the most inappropriate thing a barista has ever said to you?
 “You look tired.”

Enough about coffee, what are you doing now?
