Happy Thursday! We hope you've been enjoying the staff spotlights so far. We love creating community and relationships with our customers, so don't hesitate to ask for your barista or servers' name when you enter our cafe.
Our next staff spotlight is Emma! We asked her the following questions:
Q. Why do you make coffee?
A. I love the environment of Cafes and how people connect over a cup of coffee, either strangers or friends.
Q. What is your go to order right now?
A. Cowboy on Lactose Free Milk
Q. What do you want to do with coffee in the future?
A. I would love to work with coffee farming and adding to the sustainability of it.
Q. A fun fact about yourself.
A. I once participated in a 5 km walk across one of the Great Lakes in North America on a night where the temperature was -50C.
Q. Tell us a crazy story (perhaps from an overseas trip?).
A. Earlier this year, I was on an overseas outreach in Malaysia. It should also be noted that I'm a bit of a clumsy person, so my team and I were preparing to go out for dinner, which required using my phone to book 2 cabs to take us to the food court. We had also realized that a water bottle had been left in a cab taken earlier that day, so we called him and asked if he could bring it back. All three of these cabs arrived at our house at the same time. And, I was trying to do something with the house key, so I ended up dropping it in the storm drain that's about a meter deep, and mostly covered in cement. But, we decided to leave it and come back and get it later (because all of the cabs were already at our house). As we were eating, it started to rain, so we ate as fast as we could, thinking a normal Malaysian rain could wash our key away. We saved our gum and straws, and headed home, with the mindset of making a long stick. While trying to retrieved the key, we realized that there was little hope for "reaching" it. I then noticed an opening in the drain on the other side of the neighbors' driveway. So, I army crawled the 3, or so, metres to retrieve it, only to realize that the other half of our team who were at the grocery store had the spare key to the gate.
Emma plays such a wonderful role in our cafe. She is so kind, and loves getting to know new people that enter our cafe.
We hope you have a beautiful & restful weekend, and we look forward to seeing you when you come into The Meeting Place Cafe!
