Wear Many Hats Episode 90 — Elliott Foos

Hey everyone it’s Rashad and this is Wear Many Hats presented by Dahsar where we talk about your main gig then we talk about your side hustle.

Elliott Foos is a Director of Coffee, coffee consultant and one of the cowboys over at Cowboy Coffee.

I met him during the Throwing Fits meet ups in the park and had to try Cowboy Coffee to see if it would indeed turn me into a cowboy.

I’m a cowgirl.

Love cowboy culture, hate the Dallas Cowboys.

Elliott was previously the Director of Coffee over at James Murphy’s Daymoves which opened in partnership with the natural wine bar, The Four Horsemen. Before that, the Director of Coffee over at Gem.

I re-met Elliott at Colbo Coffee where he’s now the Director of Coffee over there with the lovely Colbo team.

He runs a weekly cultural dispatch called Stir Crazy along with a playlist that he updates weekly.

No cussin’ no fussin’ no backtalk, please welcome Elliott Foos.

How long have you worked in coffee?

Are you like half man half coffee? Do you fuck with tea?

Do you do latte art or are you like fuck that.

How do you feel about coffee being so hot right now with all these collaborations, pop-ups, coffee merch etc.

If you were to be anything other than work in coffee what would you be?

Have you ever had any crazy conversations with your customers at any of the places you’ve worked at?

What’s the craziest shit you’ve ever seen at a cafe?


How did you link up with Colbo?

At Colbo they sell clothes from PAM to Adish Studios to even Colbo’s own line of clothes. Is that your style?

Stir Crazy

In your own words, what is Stir Crazy to you?

You’ve got a lot of good acts on the playlist from Rostam to Yo La Tango and Twain. At Colbo, everytime I walk in I feel like it’s your playlist.

Are you a musician as well?

Cowboy Coffee

I’ve been sourcing Schott Perfecto Motorcycle Leather Jackets for a new Dahsar project since this is our 10 year anniversary. I’ve been wearing a leather jacket for days now and I’m really transitioning into this NYC cowboy, not the one in Times Square.

Why Cowboy Coffee?

You’ve guys have been getting a lot of press too. Already doing a shoot with Corridor in Italy. Picking up.

Hats OFF

Hats off to you on all these things that you do, for some Wear Many Hats Dahsar solutions, I have a bunch of cowboy fabric that I’ve been sourcing the past 5 years and would love to use it to collaborate with you in making handkerchiefs or something. It would be sick.


If you were to get a chest tattoo quote what would it be?

Plug your socials where can people find you?
