Our Employees

We couldn't do any of this without the help of our wonderful staff of baristas!  Many of them have been with us from the start, some not too long after, and there are a few fresh faces too.  They not only craft delicious drinks, but lend an ear to customers, keep things clean and running smoothly, provide lots of laughter and good times, allow us to have time with our children, support our vision of the shop, go along with our wacky ideas (and provide plenty of their own), and so much more.  We consider them part of our family, and we thank them for everything they do!
