Danny Shannon goes by many different aliases, Danny Latte, Barista Dan, and Super Barista Dan. He’s been a barista since 2008, and before that he was a mimosa serving, bloody mary shakin bartender down in the FiDi (Financial District) of SF.
After bringing his new skill set and talents back east to NYC, Danny has been dubbed Latte or Danny Latte. Danny Latte had his first experience as a USBC Regional competitor this year and will be the only New Yorker competing this June at the Coffee Fest Free Pour Championships.
You can find Danny brewing Stumptown and Coffee by Design at Battery Place Markets. He’s looking to lead a team in the winter to open another location near the Wall Street Bull. Brooklyn Espresso is a site that he’s putting together to showcase the finest espresso bars found in the borough of Brooklyn.
