Jamie McCormick and Elizabeth Quijada have found the perfect brew of work, love and family at their East Seventh Street espresso shop, Abraço. After befriending each other six years ago in their mutual home state of California, they quickly fell into an organic relationship fostered by their shared appreciation of music, the East Village and all things coffee. Watch The Local’s video to find out why, even after the birth of their daughter Lily a year ago, they haven’t yet decided to tie the knot.
