Meet Theresa!

June 14, 2013, 12:00 AM  |  Posted by Emily Richardson in The Team

Theresa is often one of the first faces you’ll see upon walking into the diner. She is our coffee counter manager, and she’s awesome. I talked with Theresa to learn a little more about her, so you know who’s carefully pouring your latte and brewing the diner coffee just right next time you stop in!

Before moving to Austin for a year and riding her bicycle back to Cleveland, Theresa grew up in Lakewood and worked with Phoenix Coffee. She got into coffee during this time and found a home in the coffee community, travelling in the barista competition circuit as a judge and taking the opportunity to network with others in the field. This is what drove Theresa to pursue coffee as a career. Fast forward to today: she is an integral piece of The Katz Club Diner, lending expertise, enthusiasm and an organizational eye to our prominent coffee and pastry counter.

I asked Theresa what it is about coffee that keeps her interested and passionate, and she had a lot of great things to say. “Coffee is the second most traded product on Earth, and it has the potential to change the world for the growers and the people on the other end buying their beans.” She mentions Rising Star Coffee Roasters and says that she is happy to see more companies in America taking a more direct approach to purchasing coffee beans. “It supports the farmers and creates the opportunity to understand the priorities and challenges on both ends, which builds a more sustainable system that benefits everyone.” On the creative side, Theresa likes that coffee is ‘an ever-changing medium – no two beans will ever taste the same’.

When she’s not behind the coffee counter, Theresa lists her interests as cycling, arts and crafts, the outdoors, and keeping up with her (adorable) toddler. Oh, and her favorite items under our collection of domed cake plates? The housemade cream cakes and scones.
