Owner’s of Crave LT and Karynsue bring satisfying and memorable gelatos and coffee.
Karynsue is renowned for her adventurous spirit, always embracing challenges and mastering her craft with unwavering determination. A lifelong learner, she continuously evolves her skills, constantly striving to elevate her creations to new heights.
Prior to founding Crave, she embarked on a transformative journey for three years, traveling, studying, and learning from like-minded artisans and esteemed chefs. This endeavor led to a delightful fusion of curated cold brews and delectable delights.
The path that led to the exquisitely designed Gelato Kofi Bar was nothing short of serendipity. The universe blessed Karynsue with meaningful encounters with like-minded artisans, forging connections that went beyond mere coincidence. These individuals became not just acquaintances but cherished friends and mentors. The same discerning approach was applied in selecting her current team of six employees, chosen from over 50 interviews, each bringing their heart, passion, wit, and dedication to serve the valued customers who grace their doors.
In July 2023, Karynsue and her husband LT fulfilled their dream by opening Crave Gelato Kofi Bar at the picturesque Portside Ventura Harbor. At Crave, every creation is crafted with purpose and passion. They meticulously select botanical ingredients, sourcing them organically to curate a delightful array of unique flavors.
Come and savor the experience of their handcrafted gelato, painstakingly made from scratch, and delight in their array of non-dairy options. Stay awhile to indulge in the spice-infused dolce and savor the variety of certified organic artisan coffee beverages, all served with love and care. Crave Gelato Kofi Bar promises an unforgettable culinary journey that will leave you craving for more!
