The Cleveland Barista Calendar is a collaborative project of nine competing Cleveland specialty coffee shops in support of the work of the Cafe Femenino Foundation.

Featuring thirty baristas from Phoenix Coffee Company, The Root Cafe, Rising Star Coffee Roasters, Gypsy Beans & Bakery, Loop Cafe, Dewey's Coffee, Katz Club Diner, and both Erie Island Coffee locations, the Cleveland Baristas Calendar 2015 showcases the character and sparkle of the baristas in the growing Cleveland coffee scene.

Cleveland-native photographer Angelo Merendino shot the calendar, produced by Sarah Antonik, at Peter Larson Photography at W.78th Street Studios in Cleveland.

All production costs for the calendar were generously underwritten by La Marzocco, Caruso's Coffee Roasters, Torani, Serengeti Trading and Jakprints to enable all proceeds from the calendar to go to Cafe Femenino.

Cafe Femenino, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer organization provides funding to support grant requests from women in coffee producing regions around the world. The foundation helps promote the integration of women coffee farmers into social, political and occupational organizations by providing grants that help support the women's efforts and enhance their status within the community.


The 2015 Cleveland Barista Calendar is available for purchase at all of the specialty coffee shops featured in the calendar.
