Nori and Sarah Kozuma opened up the Horseshoe Cafe on Newmarket’s main drag last year.
The Bay Area-transplants, married and heavily tattooed, divide the duties: Sarah handles the baking, including fresh breads, spreads, and a few pastries. Nori is the one-man coffee department, doing everything from importing to roasting.
“So I’m still baby roaster. We normally say about 10 years to be called a roast master,” Nori says with a laugh.
While he may classify a novice, Kozuma knows more about coffee than he’s letting on.
