October Featured Barista- Anna

Anna works primarily at our Brooks Street location. Not only does Anna have incredible spirit and work ethic, she’s just really freaking cool. We all wish we could be a little more like her- motorcycle and vintage VW included. Learn a little more about her through our 10 Barista Questions:

Where did you grow up?

I moved to Missoula from Napa Valley, CA when I was 10 years old.

When did you start drinking coffee and why?

In high school because, really, it was something to look forward to in the morning.

What is your favorite coffee drink?

Changes all the time. Right now it’s a double short americano with cream. My favorite latte is a half flavored lavender.

What is your most memorable barista experience?

I was at Saketome with Lara, Madi, and Rachel (three other Caboose baristas) and a customer bought our drinks. That made our night. Shoutout to Staci!

What is your favorite activity to do in Missoula? 

Float the river! Nothing is better than being in a river with a cold beer.

In which store would you max out your credit card? 

Target, but thankfully I’ve mastered window shopping.

What do you like about being a barista?

 Getting to know a lot of people in the community. I see my customers everywhere. It’s fun because they’re like friends.

Who is your celebrity crush and why do you like this person? 

James Franco’s little brother Dave Franco, because look at that smile. And those eyes. I guess he was pretty good in Nerve too.

What do you listen to at work? 

105.9 if I’m feeling nostalgic, 107.5 if I’m bored.

Do you have a secret talent? If so, what is it and why did you learn it? 

I play guitar to accompany myself singing. Also two words: Taylor. Swift.
