Hello dear readers! If you regularly read this blog you would know that we have been doing a little spotlight on each of our staff members for the past few weeks. The purpose of this is for you, our customers, to feel more familiar with the people who are making and serving you your coffee! This week we asked Miriam to answer a few questions, so let's get right into it!
Q. Why do you make coffee?
A. I make coffee because I love the community that it creates. There’s just something about standing behind the counter taking or making a coffee order that makes asking questions and getting to know new people so fun!
Q. What is your go-to order right now?
A. A flat white with hazelnut on oat milk!
Q. What do you want to do with coffee in the future?
A. I want to continue to use coffee to build an atmosphere of community and belonging. I think everyone deserves a place to call home and a group to call family, so I want to create a space where people can find that!
Q. What country do you really want to visit and why?
A. I really want to visit Greece and Malta because they are so beautiful and have a lot of history attached to them!
Q. How many siblings do you have and what was your favorite part about growing up with them?
A. I have 6 siblings- one brother (he is the oldest) and 5 older sisters. My favorite part of growing up with them was the holidays. We had some fun traditions and lots of food! Fun fact: the only vehicle large enough to fit us was a 12 passenger GMC white van that we would pile into in birth order!
We love having Miriam as a part of our team, she is incredibly skilled in making coffee and is such a joy to be around!
We hope you have a beautiful and restful weekend and we look forward to seeing you when you come into The Meeting Place Cafe! Be sure to tell us that you follow our blog!
