WHO WE ARE
Proud Coffee Enthusiasts!
Owner, Certified Barista, Classical Pianist
Coffee is everything to Leonor! A classically trained pianist who attended the prestigious Julliard School of Music in Manhattan, on an earned scholarship, is just as intense about her coffee as she is playing the Bach Italian Piano Concerto 3rd Movement. Imagine that!
It's said that people start businesses because they feel a strong sense of connection and unsatiable passion to make it happen. Leonor's story is just that! In 2015 she jumped into Coffee 100% and began a journey of discovery, education, sensory adventure, new friendships, industry trends and so much more. Today, along with her business partner and fellow musician, Nina Rodriguez they own and run EAM. It's about being open-minded, sensitive to what people want and being great listeners. It's putting forth those same innate musical skills, collaborating together to build a sustainable business where working together as one team is everything! We are a "Band of Baristas" who love creating, performing and delivering the very best in every pour!” As for the classical performance side - yes Leonor still plays and did we mention - she can sing too!!
