At Alowishus, we absolutely love great coffee. That love for coffee is something we always seek when selecting new members for our growing team of passionate baristas. We believe that without a genuine passion, it’s hard to make a quality cup of coffee. And quality and consistency are two of our highest values.
In this post, we’d like to introduce you to some of our best baristas (and their favourite latte art), in case you haven’t met them yet. So next time you’re in and see one of these faces, you’ll know a little more about your favourite Alowishus barista.
Hi, I’m Tyler! I’ve been making coffee for almost 8 years and now work at Alowishus Maryborough.
The thing I enjoy most about being a barista is the interaction with the customers and supplying them with their morning brew. I love when people notice, appreciate and comment on the coffee made with love. I also really enjoy being able to make myself an awesome coffee each day. May favourite latte art patterns are the swan and the rosetta.
Hey, I’m Brendan, barista at Alowishus in Bundaberg. I’ve been making coffee for a little over a year now, I started in October 2017. What I love most about being a barista? The people. You get to have a chat with everyone, you can banter with the regulars (whose orders you know by heart), you get to build relationships, and most importantly, you get to experience the joy they have on their faces as they enjoy their first sip of heaven’s nectar. Trying out new latte art styles is also really fun! I do a bit of a mix of a rosetta (leaf) but bring it around the side of the cup and it creates a nice little squiggle that looks like a fern, then I drop a little heart or something in the middle and it looks like it’s hanging from the top of it.
My name is Chloe and you might have seen me at Alowishus in Bundaberg. I’ve been making coffee for about 2 years now. I love the work environment, talking to the people I work with, as well as getting to know our customers. Surprising customers by remembering their orders is always fun! I love making them feel welcome. My favourite latte art pattern to create is the rosetta because it’s a challenge and I enjoy trying to perfect it.
Hi, I’m Shane and I work at Alowishus in Bundaberg. I started making coffee a bit over a year ago. What I love most about being a barista is that each coffee is kind of its own piece of art. Each coffee is unique in its own way. I like that it’s a fast-paced environment, it’s entertaining and never boring! My favourite latte art design is definitely the heart. It’s a simple, yet unique design.
Hi, I’m Claire – or Clur as my team calls me (basically, it’s like saying Claire with a lazy accent). I’ve been making coffee for around 10 months now but I officially started making coffee at Alowishus Maryborough around 3 months ago. Before that, I was making coffee for tired teachers at school in the morning. I think the best part of being a barista is being involved in creating something that will make someone’s day a little brighter. As making coffee is still quite new to me, the feeling of success each time a customer expresses their happiness brings me joy! My favourite coffee design would have to be a love heart. Mostly because it’s currently one of the only ones I can successfully do.
Hey, I’m Jessie! I’ve been making coffee now for about a year and a half. Doing patterns is the best thing about making coffee! I love pouring the rosetta because it’s challenging to learn, but once you get the hang of it, it looks really pretty. I’m currently working on pouring two rosettas in one cup. Yay!
