Hey! Just wanted to say Hi. :) Things are going well, it's definitely picking up... little by little. The campus schedule has a big affect on things, our biggest morning rush is before the 11 a.m. classes. Quite the adrenaline flow goin' there... I really love it! Gettin' pretty good with the latte art, but I have a long way to go still. I'm feeling pretty confident about my abilities, and I've had a couple people tell me my cappucinos are worth pictures. :) I hear frequently that my drinks are the best people have ever had, which is an amazing self-confidence booster. Every day is a new challenge to learn something and someone new. Plus, I have the most amazing schedule that works fabulously with my life... what more can a Barista ask for?? :)

Shiloh, hey I just wanted to say thank you so much for being so patient with me about training. I apologize if I seemed pushy. I worked with Kendra today and it was amazing. Hope to see you soon and have a great day.


PS-How was Coffee Fest?! Maybe I'll go to the one in Las Vegas. Lol!

Hey Shiloh,
Sorry we didn't get to catch up at CF. Hope you're doing well. Come and check out Mud Bay when you're down near Oly town!

You're right we are staying at the Grand Hyatt. I arrive Thursday, how about you? A little about me since we are going to be roomies: I like awesomely bad TV and will leave a trail of San Pelligrino bottles in my wake. Looking forward to meeting you, see you in a few days!

Well I ended up helping out and closing Saturday night (my day off) cuz Leslie at 168th e-mailed in and quit that morning. So I also worked Sunday (went well) and today. There was a scheduling issue today and only 1 barista was on for 12-5, so I volunteered to stay and pull a double, then Kyla called Brenna in at 3 so I only worked 9.3 hours. I started last Tuesday and with the 2 shifts I picked up that makes 11 days straight with a double shift in the middle. Holy Spimoni! But, I volunteered for all of it, so I'm really not complaining. I am glad for the experience so soon. Plus, now 5 days in a row with the weekend off will feel like a piece of cake! Right?!? And come Friday I should have it all down pat. Oh! And today I made a dry Cappuccino for a guy who said Starbucks always gives him Lattes and he hates it. I did it perfect and he LOVED it-- My first try!!! :-)

I told Brad that I could work anytime any of the days! Thank you for letting me be a part of coffee fest...cant wait to see you there!

Hey thanks for the add... The tamper thing is possible for sure. Come see us at Coffee Fest if you don't get a chance to drop in before and we can hash out details if you'd like.

Thanks! Today went fabulously. Kyla already gave me a key and I'm opening tomorrow without them. :) I'd say that's a great sign. Me, Julia, and Caitlin are a rockin' team. Shots today were good too and I did that Clover Leaf thing in Latte Art! I showed it around the store, haha, I was so stinkin' proud it looked like something distinguishable. Couldn't repeat it again, tho, lol. But Casey was impressed. So, every day gets better!

Hey Shiloh!

Thank You Thank You Thank You for all the fabulous training! :) I'm quite excited to put it all to use and refine my skills! I can't believe opening day is finally here, but I'm pretty confident I'll make it through :)
