8/22: Corey Stroffolino
I will be demonstrating how art and design is incorporated into the preparing of milk-based espresso beverages. T hen we will have a discussion on “perceived-quality” and “milkscience”: how getting milk and espresso to interact in a way that produces art will actually enhance the way the beverage tastes.Corey Stroffolino

Corey Stroffolino has lived in Providence for the past 7 years. During his time here he dove headfirst into the service industry, only to find a vibrant and ever-growing culinary scene. Helping serve and manage at some of the city’s favorite spots enabled him to find his home at New Harvest Coffee Roasters. T he primarily, wholesale roaster will be opening up a coffee and spirits shop downtown providence in the historic Arcade building as the city plans for its grand re-opening! Managing this new shop will allow Corey to focus in on his two favorite drinks. The finest of dark beverages. Coffee and whiskey! There is a lot of passion and art that goes into making and then preparing these drinks for consumption. Corey’s wish is to always keep learning and to always keep sharing what he finds.
