Brooklyn, Manhattan
Barista

Orwashers is a New York City institution. Founded in 1916, the bakery began as a small storefront on the Upper East Side. Orwashers was born out of a desire to serve the local community while focusing on high quality rye, black and grain breads reflecting Eastern European tradition. Keith Cohen purchased Orwashers in 2008. Keith and his team have worked hard to respect the brand’s rich history while incorporating a distinctly current point of view to satisfy today’s palates.
