Area of Expertise: Writing/Journalism; part-time pimp; kept it wheel since 1986. Staff Writer for Color Magazine Jay was raised on skateboarding; he believes that beer is the cause of and solution to all of life’s problems. Take heed.
While not all of us are familiar with the name Sam James, if you love coffee and visiting coffee shops, his name is one you should know. Sam was one of the guys who initially helped put Manic Coffee on the map, and subsequently, into the pages of Color awhile back in a Faces N'Spaces. But all this is just details; Sam has also actually won the distinction of being the best barrista in all of Toronto.
James is now making more waves: opening his own high-end coffee shop on Harbord St. in Toronto, and it's proudly named the "Sam James Coffee Bar". He was also the focus of this large recent peice in the National Post. Way to rip shit hard Sam!
New to the Stereo team is Josiah Gatlyn, seen here in his Berrics Recruits video.
Hats off to this man's unique ability to keep me interested and wanting more. Time for a beer, then a skate, then a beer again, thanks to this homeboy...
