Farley’s East Coffee Roaster of the Month: Devout Coffee
In 2011, we bought a BBQ off of Craigslist, converted it into a coffee roaster and began roasting coffee in our garage. Our coffee was good — and our friends and family thought more people should be able to experience it — so with a leap of faith in Dec 2012, we opened a storefront on Niles Boulevard, bridging the gap of specialty coffee between San Jose and Oakland.
Devout coffee is devoted to the finest quality coffee, perfecting the art of extraction, and creating an environment to enjoy the coffee experience. For more information please visit their website: https://www.devoutcoffee.com/
Visit their amazing team and beautiful shop: 37323 Niles Blvd, Fremont, CA 94536

Farley’s East Artist of the Month: Olivia Destandau
“When I think of art, I think of beauty. Beauty is the mystery of life. It is not in the eye, it is in the mind. In our minds there is awareness of perfection. We respond to beauty with emotion. Beauty speaks a message to us. We are confused about this message because of distractions. All art work is about beauty; all positive work represents it and celebrates it. All negative art protests the lack of beauty in our lives.”
These are the words of Agnes Martin, Canadian artist. They have been an anchor for me as I struggle to produce my own work.
When I first encountered her work and thoughts, I experienced a great joy, as she had perfectly expressed my own feelings about making art…and these words have been both guide and comfort.
This is my bio. This is all there is to say. I am one who struggles with often inarticulate passion towards expressing beauty or the lack thereof as I see it…. Succeeding at times, often failing, but called back to the battle time after time. For more information please visit her website: https://www.oliviaphotos.us/

Farley’s SF Window Boxes: Sara Shashani
All my work is digitally drawn on Adobe Illustrator using only a computer track pad. I began illustrating in college as a Graphic Design major. During an Illustrator course, the professor had the class focus on color, depth, and movement by drawing a single bird. Since then, I’ve added a few more birds to my collection, but mainly pull my inspiration from the world around me. Using bold colors, strokes, and imagination, I recreate what I love and witness in nature and the great outdoors. Born and raised in Washington, DC, I now reside in San Francisco where I continue to create and enjoy other passions such as traveling, hiking, and adventure sports.
