The Asprelli Family Story, and founding of Love, Lera Bakery.
Our story begins in a Russian orphanage in 2001. Our
daughter Lera came to us through adoption and required
numerous brain surgeries to control her epilepsy. As she grew, cognitive issues and challenges were met with a strong will and mantra “I won’t ever give up!”
Our coffee shop and bakery, Love, Lera, follows that same mantra “NEVER GIVE UP.” We have created this business specifically to give our daughter and other special needs adults meaningful work, a sense of pride, and the opportunity to live out their dreams. While there are other coffee shops and bakeries ours is dedicated to great quality items produced and sold by great quality people proving we “can never give up” on our hopes and dreams.
