Vivace - Change of Name

16 years ago when I started Gabriel Coffee, I took inspiration from a little known coffee roaster in Seattle called David Schomer who owned Espresso Vivace. Like him, I wanted to take the local coffee market who ‘didn’t know better’ to that ‘better’ place - of delicious coffee.

In honour of all the baristas who stand behind their coffee machines in all of our coffee partners, I’ve decided to pay tribute to them this time, by renaming our ‘first’ coffee blend as the ‘Day Maker’.

They are our superheroes that stood behind that machine throughout the last 2 years of uncertain times, delivering us tasty coffee that we could rely on.

Vivace was where I wanted to be. Day Maker is where we are today.

Much love. Sam.
