I may step down from what is, in all likelihood, one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. I’ve been working part-time at Peets Coffee, a place I love so dearly. It’s been with me for so many years, and it’s been amazing to finally be on the inside, working with the baristas and everyone who brings the team together. If you’re ever looking for a place to really grow and build your strength up, and be around a vibrant community, definitely consider a job as a barista, and this shop has so many resources to make that happen. I’ve made a lot of drinks there so far. I’ve been there for a month. But I realized after thinking this morning, that really I already know every inch of that shop, with the exception of what our manager goes through. I’ve made all the essentials, lattes, cappuccinos, mochas, and all the rest, and I even made a frappe. Someone got them, I’ll never know who. There are so many things that happen when you’re working the line, you have to pivot from conversation to conversation, remember customers and orders, in an act of friendliness and pure love. I could work there forever. It’s so incredible. It may be time to go, but I hope if anyone’s looking for something really fun and engaging to do to try it out. I have to head into my shift in a bit, but I really hope anyone who reads this blog might consider it, as we’re entering a new phase of the pandemic it may be the best thing you can do, and for me, it definitely is. Had a lot of coffee this morning. I’ll always be a Peetnik.
