Gimme! Coffee is my lifeblood! One of the best small coffee roasters in town, they have a coffee bar in Williamsburg and one in the Lower East Side. What I appreciate is that regardless of who the barista is, the way they brew the espresso is an exact science.

Clyde Valentín was born and raised in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. He is the producer and executive director of the Hip-Hop Theater Festival, a unique arts organization dedicated to bringing new and diverse audiences to the theater.
