“Valentino”

Lead Roaster & Website Fixer:

Elle “L”, comes to us from the U.I.C.A. where they served as the Guest Services Coordinator. Other recent jobs they mastered was Digital Media Coordinator at the GRAM and the paint “guy” at Home Depot. They took 7 years to complete their BFA in Photography – because Art takes time, duh.

They have three cats. We like the number three.

They have no sense of smell…and a partner – just saying.

If you notice, and we surely did, Elle really like shoes. You could say their shoes are a flamboyant extension of their introverted self. Their passion for shoes does have some merit as they is a long-distance runner. They also states that their shoes are the only accessory they choose to indulge in. Could it be that their shoe of choice is a Valentino design…nope, a Nike running shoe, but that doesn’t work for a nickname.

We encourage our customers to feed Elle a treat when they see them roasting coffee as it wouldn’t hurt them to gain a few pounds and they is much easier to work with when he has treats…favorites are cupcakes, cookies, premium chocolates, fancy cheese & crackers, etc.

Favorite Coffee: Ethiopia Guji
