Brooklyn born, Rabbi Moishy Korf AKA the Caffeinated Rabbi, started out drinking instant coffee just to stay awake during his busy Yeshiva days, but never had any appreciation for the beverage. All that changed when he visited Colombia and tasted Sello Rojo – it was love at first sip.
Having developed a taste for gourmet coffee, he went on to research what Jewish history and Halachic discussions there are on coffee, as well as sages that were coffee drinkers and the Kabbalistic meanings on coffee.
He seeks to share this passion and knowledge with others by educating themabout what it is that makes a good coffee.
Today, Rabbi Korf lives with his wife Rifka and their two children in South Florida. Rabbi Korf is a businessman during the week, and a youth rabbi for Chabad of Golden Beach on Shabbos.
