There are so many faces that come through the Downtown Blues Coffee, and we always go out of our way to greet each and every one who walks through the door. We love engaging with our customers and finding out where there from or, what brought them into our establishment.
That said, I've always liked to observe people, and look for uniqueness & peculiarity. So, I decided to pay tribute to the beautiful homo sapiens that walk through 130 S. Main Street in Las Cruces, New Mexico aka the Downtown Blues Coffee shop and call this section "MoM" for Model of the Month.
The "Model of the Month" will change every month, and feature black, native American white, hispanic, Indian, asian, gay, straight, transgender, woman, man, locals, visitors, immigrants, homeless etc, etc, etc. As we all know, our world has changed tremendously since March 2020, and has sparked so much division amongst our society. This MoM is a tribute to remind us that we are all on the same planet and ultimately, better off together. ENJOY!
Meet Candie Jurado. When I first met Candie, she was on crutches and a cast on her leg, due to an operation from a basketball injury. She came straight up to me and asked if she could play drums. (We love to hear local musicians and support them 100%) I told her yes because, I dug her confidence and style. I told her to go for it, we'd love to hear what she had. Candie frequents the coffee shop a lot and we got to know each other, I actually credit her as the one who re-introduced me to wearing vest. One thing I love about Candie, is her beautiful smile and incredible fashion sense.
