Panacea Coffee is in this amazing renovated old building with incredible natural light. The whole session was shot with natural light (and a few reflectors) but I never took the strobes out of their case. I learned a lot about roasting from Brian, the very cool and laid back owner who had the foresight to put this hip little coffee joint in an old warehouse building. I don’t even drink coffee but now I’m thinking maybe I should.
