She recently started a non-profit growing organic produce for the food insecure in Maine called Veggies to Table. In her all-too-rare free time, Erica likes to travel off the beaten track, explore Paris and Maine, read, take photos, cook, kayak, hike and enjoy long Sunday brunches with her friends.

Hear hear! I still remember the wry expression on an Italian guy’s face when he tasted the “espresso” in a Costa Coffee place in the UK — it was a picture! Coffee in France is better than coffee in the UK of course, but to my mind the quality of the coffee in most cafés has deteriorated over the past few years.

I buy Illy coffee here, but it’s true, it’s just not the same as the real thing in Italy 🙂
