A Higher Desk Podcast With Slothee Espresso Founder Jessica Lui


Umeko Motoyoshi interviews Vancouver, BC-based Slothee Espresso founder Jessica Lui on the most recent episode of A Higher Desk. Lui makes a speciality of a type of latte artwork often called etching (when instruments are used after milk is poured to attract and/or sculpt) and creates unimaginable works of colourful artwork. With Slothee Espresso, Lui teaches latte artwork lessons, organizes espresso service pop-ups, and works as a photographer and content-creator.

Slothee Espresso’s net retailer provides tees, coasters, artwork prints, stickers, co-branded Umeshiso merchandise, and cute vessels. The Slothee Espresso Etsy retailer provides much more stickers, artwork prints, and ephemera—and Lui even commissions customized work on-line. For the most recent, take a look at the Slothee Espresso Instagram @slothee.espresso.

On this episode, Lui talks about working as a barista over a decade in the past, leaving espresso to work in a company atmosphere, and beginning Slothee Espresso in 2019 as a approach to reconnect with the specialty espresso group. Part of that connection is collaboration, like Slothee Espresso’s current collaboration with Atlanta’s Tanbrown Espresso for Asian Heritage Month, making a sticker-pack bundled with a anaerobic washed course of espresso from Thailand ($30 CAD).

“The espresso group, it’s proven me a facet of humanity that was misplaced in all these years in a company workplace,” Lui tells Motoyoshi. This episode is particularly inspiring, hopeful, and inspiring to anybody who might really feel caught or misplaced of their present scenario.
