A longtime Washington D.C.–area barista at Big Bear Café, Christy Baugh's dreams (or fears, perhaps?) were confirmed while on Counter Culture's Origin Field Lab in 2011: She realized she was destined for a life in specialty coffee. In 2013, she relocated to Raleigh, NC, to join the team at CCC HQ as a junior designer. Now, this CCC Certified Barista and Coffee Steward can be found putting the finishing artistic touches on everything from lab manuals to brewing guides to other fun stuff yet to come.

When she's not busy with pens and paper, she's probably up to her elbows in spokes and gears: Christy is an avid cyclist, and goes wherever her wheels will take her. She also loves seeing live music, and has also been spending plenty of time behind the viewfinder of a Polaroid camera lately.
