McConnell's Ice Cream is a legendary Santa Barbara company. They've been around for 70 years, through 3 generations, and now they have an ice cream truck. I love teaming up with other vendors, ESPECIALLY an ice cream one for affogatos. Coffee + Ice Cream = Magic in the mouth.
Wylder Coffee Co and Welcome collabored in Ojai for a beautiful wedding at the famous Ojai Valley Inn. Wylder Coffee created a probiotic coffee that is straight up delicious and good for your gut that we served up to all the guests.
We were honored to be a part of a fundraiser for African Women Rising. This organization works with over 8,000 women in Northern Uganda, training them in capital and savings, and adult literacy. We raise a few hundred dollars to give back to the organization. That's a lot of coffee!
We were up in Sonoma County with Welcome for a corporate retreat hosted by Vino Volo. Annamarie and I popped up for all of those who had been drinking wine all day. I was told we were lifesavers and the most loved there. People really love good coffee.
My life is all things coffee. When I'm not popping up with the coffee cart at events, I am training, practicing, researching, and delivering coffee. I work a lot with Dart Coffee Co., a local roaster, as their educator and as there random task person.
Puppets of every kind took over Santa Barbara for the 1st Annual SB International PuppetPalooza, from March 1 - 4, 2018. This was a four-day family focused festival with puppeteers and artists from across the globe. I got to pop up at the opening party alongside the delicious artisan bread company called 3 Flies on a Knife. This was fun to be a part of an event that gave back to the community and offered free quality entertainment.
The famous duo of Dart Coffee and Welcome collaborated once again for a very important day: The Women's March. Together we raised over $1000 to donate to Planned Parenthood by selling donation based coffee and pussy hats, It felt great to contribute in that way for the cause.
