We're blessed to have some of the finest baristas and bakers in town.
One of our team of bakers, Amelia is undaunted by, well, pretty much anything. She bakes like a fiend, pours a lovely Rosetta, and helps run the East Main kitchen just for fun. You'll find her at the East Main shop and most often with a glowing smile.
Cute story. Madison (3rd from right) entered her first Throw Down in February at the Daily. Nervous from the get go, she made it through the first round. And then the second round. And third. And finally lost to a veteran latte art competition barista in the finals. Ever humble, she gave us all a thrill. Pictured from left to right: Kevin, Eliana, Alyssa, Madison, Hannah, and Evan.
Why is it so hard to photograph the photographer? That's not a Buddhist proverb; it's just a fact. This is as close to a head shot of Alyssa as we could get. Alyssa's off in Bali now, chasing the travel bug and the next adventure. At Cafe M, Alyssa is a savvy barista who learned the craft about as fast as anyone we've seen. While not dropping tulips on lattes, Alyssa helps with our Instagram and social media presence. She's also mother to the mischievous gnomes.
Bob's a gnome. Gnomes are mischievous little guys (and gals, I presume). Bob likes to steal Cafe M Gift Cards and hide them around the county. He drops clues on Instagram while sipping single origin espresso and reading Thoreau. We like Bob.
Kylee is a Belgrade High School graduate, MSU undergrad, and Belgrade Cafe M staple. Newer to coffee, Kylee shot through the normal barista learning curve and excels at just about every facet of the position. Rumor has it she's going to grace the Bozeman shops with her mature presence soon.
