NOLA Defender was on hand to cover the grand opening of the Green Dot Cafe in the Rosa F. Keller Library and Community Center. Development Director Jorie Kirschbaum talked about Green Dot’s rare espresso machine and Green Dot’s ability to help expand the scope of Liberty’s Kitchen.
The new cafe will serve up smoothies, paninis, salads, child friendly snacks, grab and go. However, Liberty’s Kitchen Development Director, Jorie Kirschbaum is really excited about a manual Astoria Rapallo espresso machine. “It makes a perfect shot of espresso,” she noted, “but it also allows us to expand our education into to other fields like baristas.”
