SET 4/4

A glimpse at the “Coffee Masters” segment of my new personal project THE MASTERS. This photo essay features the skilled baristas and barbacks at the Toby’s Estate. The only American base of the celebrated Australian coffee company boasts a unique feature not shared by many other New York specialty coffee companies: they perform their own roasting right here in their Brooklyn shop. Also on display, front-and-center, is Toby’s crew of baristas - all of whom hand-craft each cup backed by their years of training and experience. 

THE MASTERS is a long-term documentary project chronicling artisans whose living comes from the work they craft with their hands. From coffee slingers and brewmasters to metal workers and fashionistas, THE MASTERS examines the personalities, the tools, and the passion that bring these sometimes unappreciated and mysterious crafts to life.
