After moving to New York to study philosophy, Brendan soon found himself drinking and then making Joe coffee.

aka Mancandy, Mike is an SoCal native and recent grad from NYU in Food Studies. At a young age, he became interested in coffee, but as his interest in coffee outgrew the opportunities available to him, he began searching for something more. He worked his way up at Joe from barback, and with hard work, determination, and some expertly crafted brown-nosing, he quickly rose to the position of barista. When he's not behind the machine, he's probably cooking, following the Lakers, or reading comics.
Jonathan began his career as a talent agent, but always noticed that many of the city’s cafes focused more on their décor than on the coffee they served. In 2002, he left that field to open a coffee shop that would be obsessively committed to producing a great cup of coffee. At Joe, the coffee is the priority: beans from a boutique supplier(Ecco Caffe), top-of-the-line equipment and rigorously trained baristi. Mr. Rubinstein also regularly gives lectures and does radio and tv shows on coffee and espresso.
Gabrielle helped her brother Jonathan open Joe in 2003, leaving a career in opera to pursue her other passion, coffee. Gabrielle heads up the catering department, among other roles at Joe. She also started the Team Joe running club, meeting every Saturday with local runners/coffee aficionados. That is also where she met her Aussie husband.
Amanda has been with Joe since it's opening day in 2003. She was Joe's first barista, first trainer, first manager, and first Director of Coffee. Amanda also acts when there's time, is part of an active Jug Band, and just had her first baby.

Emelyne Smith hails from the glorious state of NJ, and started working at Joe in 2009. Prior to her big move to NY, Emelyne studied journalism at The College of New Jersey, and worked at Small World Coffee in Princeton, where her fiery passion for the bean was ignited. Besides making coffee, Emelyne enjoys food, travel, writing about food and travel, dancing like there's no tomorrow, thinking about hedgehogs, and watching Hulu.com until her brain hurts.
After observing the wiley ways of the coffee community for several years, she took the plunge and joined the awesome world of Joe. In her spare time, she walks around town with a camera and a frown, but don't be mistaken, she is laughing on the inside. She lives in Brooklyn with 2 clingy cats and a prolific illustrator who may have just made your latte. JJ is very fond of talking or not talking and will be happy to find things to talk about or not talk about whenever you stop by the 13th street shop
I grew up in a town near Seattle. As WA can be somber, you have to find things to help cope. For me, that was books&coffee. Reading a book in my first coffeehouse, I gained a job & a great friend, my boss. She told me that I could live for free in my dream bookstore (Shakes.and Co.) in Paris. There, I spent a lot of time in cafes. Then, I came to NY, studied lit at New School, & got a job in publishing. For three years on my way to work, I got coffee at Joe.Then one day I decided to make coffee at Joe.
