Watch Blue Bottle Coffee's Baker Whip Up Some Fruit Buckles

"What I love about baking is that it makes people happy."

The cultishly beloved roaster Blue Bottle Coffee bakes its pastries in-house, and in this short video, production company Pocketbook Collective follows head kitchen manager Alyssa Meijer Drees as she creates the shop's familiar fruit buckles: "basically, an American-style coffeecake." Each week, Meijer Drees sources 75 pounds of grapes from the Berkeley Farmer's Market, and she calls the process "being able to honor what the farmers do by minimally treating their fruit." The buckles then "serve as a vessel for these really wonderful fruits that are grown in this area," she says. Go, watch the video above.
