Asheville, North Carolina, is my town. Recently, I was invited to write two profiles of local coffee houses for Specialty Coffee Retailer magazine.
The second profile, featuring Asheville’s sensational Double Decker Coffee Bus, appears in the August issue of the magazine. The first profile, on Izzy’s Coffee Den, appeared in 2008.
Dan Bolton, the editor-in-chief of the magazine, provided me with a unique opportunity to take a creative journalism approach to these impressionistic, travelogue-esque profiles.
