About the Book:

“If you live in Miami, you don’t get your coffee indoors. You get it through a window. A little window. A ventanita.”

Through poetry, stunning photos, and joyful interviews, the book Ventanitas: A Window into Miami’s Coffee Culture looks into the lives of the people who gather at the city’s coffee windows for conversation & human connection.

“Si vives en Miami, no tomas tu café adentro. Lo pides por una ventana. Una pequeña ventana. Una ventanita”. A través de poesía, impresionantes fotografías y alegres entrevistas, el libro Ventanitas: Una Ventana a la Cultura de Miami analiza las vidas de las personas que se reúnen en las ventanas de los cafés de la ciudad para conversar y establecer conexiones humanas.

“The variety of Miami’s ventanitas doesn’t just extend to what’s offered. Some are places to debate politics, family issues, and social opinions, while others seem to be a lot less political and more about the grab-and-go. One thing they all have in common, though, is the culture of Miami, a culture that I’ve always been, and always will be, in love with,” writes James Beard Award-Winner and restaurateur Michelle Bernstein in the book’s foreword.

“La variedad de ventanitas de Miami no se extiende sólo a lo que se ofrece. Algunos son lugares para debatir política, asuntos familiares y opiniones sociales, mientras que otros parecen ser mucho menos políticos y más centrados en pedir para llevar. Sin embargo, una cosa que todos tienen en común es la cultura de Miami, una cultura de la que siempre he estado y estaré enamorada”, escribe la ganadora del premio James Beard y restauradora, Michelle Bernstein, en el prólogo del libro.

“In Miami, American coffee is called American coffee. Everywhere else, it’s just coffee.” – Felipe Valls, Jr.

“En Miami al café americano se le llama café americano. En el resto del país, es sólo café”. Felipe Valls, Jr.
