Blake Mycoskie, founder of Toms shoes, is a travel fanatic fueled by late-night Buddha Bowls and 6 a.m. cups of espresso.
Competing on the Amazing Race Season 2

His 6:01 A.M. Espresso Habit
We opened Toms cafés in Austin and Los Angeles; New York City and Portland, Oregon, are coming soon. They all serve direct-trade coffee from countries where we donate Toms shoes, like Rwanda. Every day that I’m in L.A., I’m the first customer at our café. It opens at 6 a.m.; the barista, Nick, knows I’ll be there at 6:01.
