These super-limited custom spoons were designed by Julien Langevin (he/him). Julien is the 2022 US Cup Tasters Champion – aka the best coffee taster in the United States 🥰 He will be competing with this spoon at World Cup Tasters!
Julien chose the trans symbol for the bowl of the spoon and the words “Slurp on, soft slurp” on the back of the handle.
“‘Slurp on, soft slurp’ is a reminder to me, and hopefully whomever slurps from this spoon,” says Julien,” “That no matter what your slurp sounds like, whether it’s a whistle you can hear across the room or a little gurgle only you can make out, it is a good slurp. I myself have a very soft, almost inaudible slurp where I don’t aerate much, and I’ve felt insecure about it before. But I’ve found there is no wrong way to slurp, as long as it’s consistent, and as long as it works for you.”
All proceeds from this custom spoon go to Glitter Cat Barista!! Glitter Cat provides support, training, access to resources, and mentorship for marginalized hospitality professionals including BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, neurodivergent, disabled, and persons of marginalized gender.
