For starters we steam milk of your choice to 160 degrees unless asked otherwise. We add the flavor of choice in the cup and in this case its the Island Dream. Island Dream flavor is a combination of coconut, raspberry and a hint of vanilla. The steamed milk is mixed together with the flavors and the shot of espresso, thus creating the latte you just ordered.
As for me and my previous spot in the Student Union, I have been able to see some people from the SU, I guess they just can't go without getting their coffee from me. From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., I am super busy and don't have a lot of time to talk to people and make new friends. However, from 1-3 p.m. are my management hours and I get to go around to the other coffee shops (Fireside and the Union Station) and see how everything is running, and see some familiar faces.
Besides being a full time barista, I am a student here at UAA. I am currently just taking two classes after work so that I can move toward my degree. My goal is to become a physical therapist with a sports injury focus. Having class and work can be a little stressful, but I'm getting better at it.
