Meet Your Barista: Marco B.

Every week or two, we’ll be using the blog to reacquaint you with some familiar faces: our baristas. Find out how they got into this mess in the first place and more. We’re moving on to round six with Marco Belloccio.

Name: Marco Bellocchio

Store: Georgetown

Years with Dolcezza: Since January 2015

How do you take your coffee? With an alfajor on the side!

What made you want to work for Dolcezza? The amazing gelato. It’s even better than back in Argentina.

What do you do when you’re not at work? Paint esoteric/psychedelic stuff and surf the streets of DC with my longboard.

Favorite coffee region: Centro America.

Affogato of choice: Salted Caramel.

Favorite music to play at work: The Dolcezza playlist! 😛 But really, I like my music to be uplifting so I can have a nice flow working and generate a good mood in the store.

Funniest/weirdest Dolcezza story: The weirdest thing for me is that since I started working here, people recognize me on the streets ,and it makes me feel like a total rock star.
